Average gas prices in South Dakota rose over the past week, following the national trend.

That’s according to the latest statewide survey from Gas Buddy.

The state’s average cost-per-gallon rose one cent to $3.59.

That’s lower than the national average of $3.78 per gallon, though it’s a few cents higher than neighboring states like North Dakota and Nebraska.

Gas Buddy analysts said the rise is driven by shortages in the Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic region. They expect that tight supply to ease in coming weeks.
