The Cha-Ching Sound is Louder at Local Gas Pumps

by Deirdre Blake posted Feb 5 2013 2:26PM
If you put gas in your car this week for the first time since late last week, you likely had a shock. 
Windy VanCuren with AAA Mid-Atlantic says prices have been on a steady rise. She says the price has jumped 17 cents in the past week and a staggering 10 cents in much of Fredericksburg since last Friday.
The typical jump in the price at the pump in the Spring appears to have come early. VanCuren says it is likely because of higher crude oil and wholesale prices, refinery maintenance slow downs and low gas supplies.
Prices are not likely to drop in coming weeks, but the rise could be slower and level off to a peak before the summer driving season.
