Gas Prices Heading Up

You've likely noticed gas prices have risen lately.

Experts say the price at the pump has gone-up nearly ten cents in the last two weeks -- and that it may climb even higher.

Right now the national average is $2. 73 a gallon. Triple-A of the Carolina's says the average price in our area is $2.76 -- up from $2.58 last month and $1.90 last year at this time.

Analysts predict prices to rise over the next 4 to 6 weeks and then level out around $2.90 this summer. They say the prices reflect a strengthening economy.
