(WLUK) -- Gas prices crept up ever so slightly last week.
The average price per gallon on Sunday was an even $2.00 in both the Green Bay and Appleton areas, according to GasBuddy. That was an increase of less than a cent from a week earlier.
"With oil prices back over $50 per barrel, it looks like gas prices in more areas may soon bottom out and start to tick higher. While it doesn't seem that prices will rise very far, it looks more and more like the lowest price of the year may now be behind us," Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy, said in a news release. "The national average briefly hit $2.22 per gallon last week, but will likely move up slightly or stabilize this week. Gas prices in the Great Lakes saw a noticeable jump last week and tend to see among the earliest trend changes in the country, which may be a harbinger of what's to come for the rest of us."
The national average ended the week at $2.24, half a cent higher than a week earlier.Gas prices
