AAA says higher prices for gas expected to start off in 2014
In Manchester, the average price of regular gas was $3.37 a gallon on Monday, 5-cents higher than a month earlier, and by a penny more than the same date in 2012.
Pat Moody, spokesman for Northern New England AAA, said maintenance and other issues at refineries appear to be the biggest factor in gasoline prices.
As of Monday, gas prices had risen 11 days in a row nationally, and the Midwest states of Ohio, Michigan and Indiana had seen gas prices increase by more than 25 cents over a two-week period. Moody said it’s hard to say whether New Hampshire will see such increases.
