Average retail gas prices in Huntsville have risen 0.3 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.63, yesterday.

"As the summer driving season gets underway, there's reason to be optimistic and perhaps happy: OPEC appears ready to raise crude oil production to meet higher global demand, dashing at least for now, the likelihood of seeing the national average hit that ugly $3/gallon mark," said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.
