A new week and a new year, but the same story as gas prices continue to go up in Maine and across the nation.

According to the price monitoring site Gas Buddy, the average price for a gallon of gas in Maine is now at $2.387, which is up over 4 cents from last weeks average of $2.343.

The current National average for a gallon of gas is $2.34 a gallon.

This marks the 5th straight week gas prices have gone up in Maine. The Maine average is up 15 cents from last month at this time, and up 30 cents from last year at this time.

Once again, the lowest price found in Maine was at the Cumberland Farms store in Wells, which is selling gas at $2.16 a gallon.
