Sticker shock at the pump continues

The price at the pump continues its climb toward the dreaded $4 a gallon mark.

The cost of fueling up has risen nationwide for more than 35 days straight according to AAA MidAtlantic.

In Delaware, motorists were paying $3.69 a gallon following an increase of two cents for the week.

Auto club spokeswoman Jana Tidwell says the price at the pump could flirt with the $4/gallon mark this spring.

She says recent drops in the price of crude may ease motorists' suffering in the near future.
