UNDATED (WJON News) -- Gasoline prices have risen in the past week.

Gas Buddy says average gas prices in Minnesota have gone up 7.7 cents, averaging $2.83 per gallon.

The national average has risen 4.5 cents, averaging $3.07.

They say a cold weather-related refinery shutdown pushed the wholesale price of gasoline upward.  Gas Buddy says the larger increases will be witnessed in a few weeks when we enter mid-February and lasting through April or May, during which the national average could rise 35 to 85 cents per gallon.
