Gas prices continue to climb

Higher gas prices over the past week could hold sign of more increases to come.  
The average cost of a gallon of gas in Delaware is now $3.47.  That’s an increase of six cents over the weekend and nine cents for the week.  AAA Mid-Atlantic is warning drivers to prepare for record breaking prices at the pumps this spring.  “Motorists are in for potential record-setting gas prices during the first half of the year, according to many analysts,” says AAA’s Jana Tidwell.  She says it’s likely that prices will break the $4.00 mark within the next few months.
