SPOKANE, Wash. — Gas prices in Spokane have risen 3.3 cents in the last week, according to a recent survey from GasBuddy.

The average price for a gallon of regular gas in Spokane is currently $4.77 per gallon. Prices are 40.9 cents higher than one month ago and $1.15 higher than a year ago.

According to GasBuddy, the cheapest gas in Spokane was priced at $4.57 per gallon on Sunday, while the most expensive was priced at $5.49 per gallon, a difference of 92 cents per gallon.

The lowest gas price in the state of Washington on Sunday was $4.10 per gallon, while the highest was $6.29 per gallon.

Price increases were seen across the nation in the last week. The national average price for a gallon of regular gas increased 13.8 cents in the last week, according to GasBuddy. The average price currently stands at $3.92 per gallon, which is 22.5 cents higher than a month ago and 67 cents higher than a year ago.

The national average price of diesel has increased 18.0 cents in the last week and stands at $5.04 per gallon, according to GasBuddy.

"With OPEC+ deciding to cut oil production by two million barrels a day, we've seen oil prices surge 20%, which is the primary factor in the national average rising for the third straight week," said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. "Some of the refinery snags that have caused prices to surge in the West and Great Lakes appear to be improving, with prices in those two regions likely to inch down, even with OPEC's decision, as the drop in wholesale prices has offset the rise due to the production cut. But where gas prices didn't jump because of refinery issues, they will rise a total of 10-30 cents due to oil's rise, and some areas are certainly seeing the jump already. For now, I don't expect much improvement in prices for most of the country, with California and the Great Lakes as the exception, with downdrafts likely in the days and weeks ahead."
