Drivers fume over gas price increases
RALEIGH (WTVD) -- Some commuters felt a slap at the pumps recently with gas prices jumping five cents or more overnight. Many drivers are fuming as those prices inch closer and closer to $4 a gallon.
Analysts predict gas jumping that high before this summer because of repeated threats by Iran to block a main oil shipping route. They say there's also increased demand from China and, as our economy starts to recover, people begin to drive more, which drives up prices too.
North Carolina's average price of $3.44 a gallon is above the national average of $3.38 but remember the state has some of the highest gas taxes in the country.
