Delaware gas average up 32 cents in one month

Gas prices still headed up, could hit $3.75 by next month.

Delaware’s average cost for a gallon of gas is up 32 cents over the past month, now stands at $3.43.  AAA Mid-Atlantic’s Jana Tidwell says, “Prices at the pump are in a state of flux right now, surpassing the $3.50 a gallon benchmark this weekend and heading higher as crude oil prices continue to climb.”  The car club predicts higher crude oil and gas prices in the coming week due to “continued uncertainty” in North Africa and the Middle East.  Analysts say gas prices will reach $3.75 per gallon by April.
