Maine gas prices jump another nickel
AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — The expected fall of gasoline prices with the end of the summer driving season still isn't here, as the average retail cost of a gallon of gas in Maine jumped nearly a nickel in the past week.
Price-monitoring website MaineGasPrices.com reports Monday that gas is up to $3.94 a gallon in Maine, 13 cents higher than the national average.
Prices are now more than 20 cents per gallon higher than the same day a year ago and more than 16 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.
