National pump prices have risen for 20 of the past 21 days, rising a total of 11 cents during this span. 

The national average price for regular unleaded gasoline sits at $2.24 per gallon, which is the highest mark since October. 

Today’s average is three cents more than one week ago, nine cents more compared to one month ago and 24 cents more than the same date last year. 

Over the past week, gasoline prices in Wisconsin have risen 7 cents. 

Prices continue to rise due to market expectations of tighter availability following the announcement of an OPEC deal to cut oil production that is scheduled to start in January 2017.
