SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah gas prices are climbing again.
The Utah chapter of the American Automobile Association says the average price of a self-serve gallon of regular gas is up to $2.81. That's an eight-cent increase from last month. It's 29 cents higher than this time last year.
The AAA says nationally the average price of gas is $2.76 a gallon. Gas is over three bucks a gallon in California and Hawaii.
Utah AAA spokeswoman Rolayne Fairclough says gas prices usually drop this time of year as suppliers sell off fuels formulated for summer. She says analysts think the high price of oil is driving the increase in gas prices.
All but one Utah city surveyed by AAA since last month reported increases in prices. Only Moab saw a drop in prices -- but it was just two cents.
