Vt. gas prices not rising as fast as elsewhere

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Gasoline prices continue to shoot higher, but for once, Vermont's prices are not rising as fast as the rest of the country.

Gas prices have risen for 32 straight days according to AAA. The average price nationally increased 42 cents-- that's a 13 percent increase. In Vermont, prices have gone up 27 cents during that same period. That closes the gap, but Vermonters are still paying more than most other Americans-- an average of $3.84 a gallon, compared to a national average of $3.73, according to GasBuddy.com.

As usual, experts cite a variety of reasons for the increase, including rising crude oil prices, production cuts and refinery closings.
