LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

After weeks of decline, gas prices in the Las Vegas area trended upwards on Monday.

According to AAA's Fuel Gauge Report, the average price of regular unleaded rose one cent over the last week. The price of gas stands at $3.03 a gallon.

The price of gas was $3.15 a gallon a month ago and about $3.42 a gallon at this time last year.

Nationally, the average price of gas increased about 4.5 cents per gallon during the last month.

"The national average has picked up in the last week on the apparent start of refinery maintenance season," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "Refinery production has taken a hit in the last week as companies begin looking towards the summer driving season, utilizing this time of year for maintenance and any upgrades before gasoline demand races higher for the summer season."
