Gas prices are rising throughout New Hampshire, and experts say they will continue through the spring and summer.
In the last week, gas prices in New Hampshire have risen 27 cents per gallon, according to John Shaer of the New England Convenience Store and Energy Marketers Assn. Over the last month, prices are up by over 40 cents per gallon.
The Biden administration said they will release 60 million barrels of oil from the reserves.
Shaer said reserve oil will not curb rising gas prices, but the good news is that there is no price gouging.
"As prices go up, particularly at the rates they've been going up, it's an incredibly difficult time for retailers. So, they're in it with the consumers," Shaer said. "They would like nothing more than to see prices fall. So I guess my message to people is don't take it out on your retailers. It's not their doing."
Experts said prices will continue rising in the summertime when gas stations use their summer blends, which are more expensive.
