Gas prices soar; up 18 cents in a week
Gas prices have been going up almost on a daily basis, and the surge continued Wednesday with the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded in New Hampshire came in at $3.647, according to AAA. The average on July 10 was $3.463 — increasing by more than 18 cents in just one week.
Moody said refineries in Nova Scotia and Philadelphia have been experiencing production difficulties while another plant in New Jersey completes planned maintenance.
While New Hampshire remained slightly below the national average of $3.657, the price spike in the Granite State over the last week was greater by a few cents.
