Gas prices on the rise again for Del. drivers

A recent surge in gas prices continues for Delaware motorists.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular in Delaware has risen five cents from $3.62 last week to $3.67 heading into this week.

Auto Club spokesperson Jana Tidwell says the heightened prices are a result of more expensive crude oil and regional production issues.

She says the national average is expected to continue to rise, but will peak this April at a lower price than the last two years.
