Gas prices are on the rise again nationwide and Friday average gas prices in South Dakota were $3.50, which is 43 cents higher than a month ago.
A South Dakota AAA representative says gas prices in the state have gone up nearly 10 cents every week for the past month.
Fuel costs traditionally rise when refineries switch over to making summer blends. That typically happens in February and March.
The highest gas prices recorded in South Dakota happened in 2011 reaching nearly $4 per gallon.
