(Washington) -- AAA Mid-Atlantic say gasoline prices are rising and will likely continue to increase this month.

The average price for a gallon of unleaded in Pennsylvania is $2.61, according to Gas Buddy (dot) com.

In the midstate, the cost ranges from $2.56 in York to $2.59 in Lancaster.

The national average is $2.46 per gallon -- about .29 cents more than a month ago.

AAA says the price of gas has been moving higher for 39 consecutive days through Friday.

The auto club says paying $2 for gas will seem like a distant memory in the coming weeks.

But, it notes prices still are much cheaper than in recent years. AAA says most U.S. drivers should still pay less than $3 per gallon this year.
