Maine energy officials said the price of home heating oil has risen by 3 cents a gallon in the past week.

As usual, southern Maine had the lowest prices and northern Maine had the highest.

Propane was selling for $2.76 a gallon on average, up 3 cents from a week ago.

Kerosene was selling for $4.12 a gallon, which was also up by 3 cents.
