Gas prices on the rise, are they still going up?

Average retail gasoline prices in Cleveland have risen 11.4 cents per gallon in the past week.

Averaging $3.93/g yesterday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 831 gas outlets in Cleveland.

This compares with the national average that has increased 1.2 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.64/g, according to gasoline price website

"It's been another relatively quiet week across most of the country with the national average fluctuating little," said Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

"Having said that, some hot spots have emerged- specifically areas of the Great Lakes where prices last week shot within just a tenth of a penny of four dollars per gallon. While that has led Great Lakes and Midwest markets higher, I don't believe the higher prices are sustainable much longer. In many areas that saw large jumps last week we're already seeing relief. For the rest of the country, this week will likely feature little movement as wholesale gasoline prices continue in their funk and as we await the "traditional" decline of wholesale prices to start the summer driving season," DeHaan said.

Let's hope we feel some relief at the pumps soon!
