Vermont gas prices increasing slower than elsewhere

BURLINGTON (AP) - Gasoline prices are continuing to rise in Vermont, but they're not going up as fast as in other parts of the country.

Nationally, the average price has increased 42 cents a gallon.

But in Vermont prices have gone up 27 cents a gallon over that same period.

Vermonters are still paying more for gas than most other Americans, an average of $3.84 a gallon, compared to a national average of $3.73.
