Gas Price Average Reaches 30-Month High

Gas is at an all time high this week.  In fact, Philly hasn't seen prices so high since September of 2008.

The average retail price of a gallon of regular, self-service gas in Philly hit $3.66 a gallon overnight.

The price is up 9 cents in the past week and 17 cents in the past month.

The average price for a gallon of regular gas nationally has reached $3.69.  This average is up 10 cents from last week and 19 cents in the past month. 

The ever-climbing gas prices are the result of difficulty in international oil exporting and developments in Japan after the earthquake.

Gas prices are expected to top around $3.75 a gallon this spring and are expected to rise as the week goes on because of growing U.S. demand.
