After hitting lows not seen for years, gas prices across the country are shooting back up. Montana prices, however, have yet to see a dramatic increase, says Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

We saw a little bit of an uptick," DeHaan said. It looks like Montana prices in Montana increased a few fractions of a penny, rising just three-tenths of a penny to about $1.91 on average. The U.S. average on the other-hand, ramped up and rose a whopping 12 cents and is now $2.18 a gallon.

The upswing in prices has made Montana one of the cheapest states to buy gas.

Now Montana is just one of the few states under $2.00 a gallon," DeHaan said. In fact, most of the states under $2.00 are in the Rockies: Idaho, Utah, Montana, South Carolina makes an appearance, and Wyoming as well as Oklahoma and Texas, are the only states averaging under $2.00 a gallon."

DeHaan predicts that weeks of increasing prices are in the near future, but says Montana probably won’t see the big climbs that the rest of the nation is seeing.
