Gas Prices Go Up

It's possibly due to impending hurricane Dean threatning oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. For motorists in Eastern Carolina and all over the country, that means shelling out more cash. Gail Fottler, a Washington resident, says she has no choice but to pay the surging costs and says this latest hike possibly due to hurricane Dean is simply a reason to raise prices. The average price of gas in our state now is $2.68, the national average is $2.77.
