Salt Lake City, Utah — While the gas prices in most of the countries go down since last week, Utah’s cost at the pump defied the trend and went the other way.
According to the American Automobile Association, the average price of regular gas in Utah rose 8 cents to $3.86 per gallon. That number ranks Utah as the fourth most expensive state for gas.
Utah and Idaho saw the biggest jumps in gas prices last week.
Overall, 31 states saw gas prices decline last week as the national average dropped to $3.15 per gallon.
The drop was attributed to the demand for gas in the U.S. remaining relatively flat.
