“Last summer we had 13.4 million visitors come to New Hampshire and spend $1.83 billion and this year we expect the season to be on par or better,” said Freligh.
Gas prices have risen in New Hampshire over the last few weeks, but are still below the national average. The website Gasbuddy.com puts the average retail price for a gallon of gas at $3.45 in New Hampshire as of Thursday, up 1.9 cents in the last week. That puts current prices 23.9 cents per gallon lower than the same day a year ago, but 2.8 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.
On Thursday, the website NewHampshiregasprices.com listed the highest reported price for regular unleaded in the state as $3.69 a gallon at four different stations in Newton, Twin Mountain, Plaistow and Bretton Woods. The lowest, according to the website, was $3.33 a gallon at a Gulf station in Tilton.
