NEW YORK- Drivers can expect gasoline prices to rise in the coming weeks as the price of crude oil has risen over the past month and refiners get ready to switch over to summer blends.

Fuel supplies will decline as maintenance at refineries kicks in and production is dialed back, and the law supply and demand comes into play.

Analysts say the increases won't be as severe as in years past but it will be noticeable.

AAA says gas prices have risen seven days in a row and are now at their highest since October.
