Gas prices continue predicted rise

Gas prices are inching up, as experts predicted for this spring. The national average price at the pump jumped three cents last week to end at $3.58 per gallon Monday.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says it expects prices to peak between $3.55 and $3.75 per gallon in the coming weeks. In Delaware, the average price of a gallon of gas is up four cents from one week ago, at $3.54.

Nationwide, drivers across the country enjoyed a drop in gas prices over the past month, paying the lowest they have for fuel in March since 2010. The average price of a gallon of gas four years ago was $2.78.
