Gas Prices Rising; Forecast Looks Grim

Posted: Updated:

TRI-CITIES, Wash.--The American Automobile Association (AAA) says the average here in the Tri-Cities is $3.25 for a gallon of Regular Gas.  

One month ago, the average price was around $3.10 cents. That's 15 cents lower. Heading back to 2007, you would have paid roughly $2.43 cents a gallon. That's an $.82 cent hike over 12 months.

Unfortunately, gas prices are rising and it doesn't appear they will be falling back anytime soon. Considering how consumers are dependent on gasoline, the increasing prices probably won't stop people from buying. One man said you have to pay to the bills somehow.

If you think gas prices are tough now, many experts are predicting a gallon of gas will reach $4.00 dollars by Summer
