Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

Experts are saying that gas prices could be on the rise in the United States due to the recent string of cold weather.

Gas prices in America have risen on average of up to twelve cents higher. Right now the average price for gas is $3 nationwide. Some of the highest price states for gas are New York, California, and Connecticut which have gas prices of up to $3.70.

The economist who performed the recent gas study also found that the states where the gas prices are higher are some of the most populated areas in the United States. To go along with the study the university of Michigan launching it's own study saying that as the prices of gas go up, consumer confidence in spending goes down leading to poor sales during winter months.

Gas prices here in the Electric City are currently 3.05.
