ALBANY, N.Y. -- We're starting the new week with higher gas prices and it doesn't seem that trend will end any time soon.
According to the latest Lundberg survey, the national average for a gallon of regular is $3.59, which is up about a quarter in the past two weeks.
While crude oil prices in the United States have been stable, prices internationally have gone up over the past month.
Analysts say American refineries are gearing up for higher demand in the spring and summer, which may be a factor in today's prices.
Here in our area, we are paying more for gas than the national average. According to AAA, drivers in Albany are shelling out $3.87 for gas, which is up five cents from last week and 23 cents from last month. Drivers in Pittsfield are currently paying $3.71 a gallon.
