Gas prices in Wisconsin are on the rise this spring.

GasBuddy.com reported the average price of a gallon of gas in the state stood at $2.57 on Thursday, up 23 cents from prices a month ago.

Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy’s head of petroleum analysis, said refineries in the Great Lakes region had dropped prices over the winter to help unload stores of winter gasoline before the end of the season.
