CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – Gas prices in northern New England have gone up a bit more in the last week, but may have peaked as refineries return to production following Hurricane Harvey.

The latest survey from GasBuddy shows average retail gasoline prices in Vermont rose 1.7 cents per gallon in last week, averaging $2.73 on Monday. In Maine, the average price also was $2.73 per gallon, up 1.6 cents from the previous week. The price in New Hampshire went up 1.2 cents in the past week, to 2.69 per gallon.

The national average has increased 1.8 cents in the last week to $2.65 per gallon. That’s 30.4 cents higher than a month ago and 48.1 cents higher than a year ago.
