UNDATED (WJON News) -- With oil prices bouncing back to $70 per barrel after reaching as low as $66 in early May, gas prices moved higher in some states last week.

However, the national average price of gasoline has only risen 0.4 cents per gallon, averaging $3.51.

The average price of gas in Minnesota fell 3.6 cents last week, averaging $3.42.  According to Gas Buddy, the cheapest station in Minnesota was priced at $2.96.

Even though the gas price decline hit pause nationally last week, Gas Buddy says it is still looking likely that barring a major hurricane or series of refinery outages the national average may not hit the $4 mark this year.
