Montana gas prices considerably higher than last winter

Montana's gas prices are starting to inch upward again, but more significant than the creeping prices this winter is how much more you're paying at the pump than last year at the same time. 

GasBuddy.com is reporting prices have risen almost a penny a gallon this past week, to an average of $2.57 a gallon. That compares with the average gas price nationally that increased 3.5 cents a gallon this past week, to an average of $2.52 a gallon. 

That's not much of an increase, but it is 29-cents higher than a year ago,. However, it's still a bargain compared to five years ago, when the average price was an even $3 per gallon at Montana stations.
