FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The average price for a gallon of regular gas in North Dakota has hit a 17-month high.

The auto club AAA said Monday the price has risen to $2.35 a gallon for the first time since November 2015.

Fuel prices have been moving up the last couple weeks because of higher crude oil prices. Also factoring into the increase is the introduction of higher-priced summer blends and a seasonal increase in demand, as well as continued maintenance on refineries.

AAA says the national average price for regular is $2.40. Gas prices are expected to continue to climb with Memorial Day approaching and travel picking up.
