(Undated-AP) -- Industry analysts are expecting gas prices in Utah to continue creeping up as the mercury rises.
Utah residents are already busting wallets at the pump, paying a near-record dollar and 76 cents for a gallon of regular unleaded gas.
However, analysts say consumers could see an average price of a dollar-86 in the April and May driving season.
That would break the previous record of a dollar-83, which the state hit last September.
High prices for crude oil, a weak dollar, high demand for gasoline and low inventories are being blamed for the spike.
