Crude oil prices were back up to start the new week, rising over $71 per barrel Monday morning.

"If the price goes down a little bit for whatever reason, then we could see it staying about the same-now, keep in mind we're looking at some of the highest gas prices we've seen since 2014 right now", said Grant.

Gas prices will likely continue to rise this week, but likely at a slower pace than the 6-cent rise seen this week.
