Gas prices on the rise but should stay under $3

MADISON — Refinery maintenance and stable oil prices have pushed gasoline prices up during the past week, but prices are expected to stay under $3 a gallon for the rest of 2015.

Auto club AAA said on Tuesday that after falling for a record 123 straight days, the national average started inching up a week ago and continues to do so.

The national average for a gallon of gas is now at $2.067, up three cents from a week ago but still $1.20 below what prices were a year ago.

"Barring any events that cause the global price (for oil) to increase substantially, AAA expects the U.S. average (for gas) will remain below $3 per gallon throughout 2015," the auto club said in a news release on Tuesday.

The Wisconsin average is $2.092 a gallon, up 2.8 cents from Monday and almost 12 cents higher than a week ago.
