The survey, by GasBuddy, found that the average gasoline price in Seattle has risen nearly 5 cents a gallon over the past week, while the nationwide average price has dropped by 2.4 cents.

In Washington state as a whole, the average gas price is up 4.4 cents per gallon. And in the Yakima area, the average price has surged by 11.3 cents per gallon over the past week.

Still, Seattle gas prices are about 13 cents cheaper than at the same time last year.
