Maine's average price of home heating oil is up 4 cents from last week to $3.69 a gallon.

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) _ The results of a weekly survey released Tuesday show northern Maine had the highest average price while the lowest price was found in the western part of the state.

The average price of propane went up 2 cents a gallon, to $2.7, but remains much lower than a year ago. Kerosene rose 2 cents from last week to $4.13 a gallon.

The Governor's Energy Office said while prices are climbing, the upward trend appears to be slowing.
