Gasoline prices across North Dakota rose 1.5 cents in August, but remain more than 40 cents a gallon lower than they were one year ago.

According to auto club group AAA, the statewide average stands at $2.11 while the national average is $2.23. One year ago, North Dakota motorists were paying $2.57, while nationally the average stood at $2.58.

The average price paid for a gallon of regular gas in North Dakota during August was $2.10. Last year the monthly average was $2.63.

The last time the August average was below $2.10 was in 2004, when the average was $1.93.
