VA Nearing Record Gas Prices

Travel organization AAA Mid-Atlantic says gas prices in Virginia are averaging $3.11 a gallon.

That's 85 cents higher than this time last year, when motorists paid $2.26 a gallon in Virginia. And the organization says the current gas price here is only three cents lower than the all-time high of $3.14, set in September 2005 just after Hurricane Katrina.

AAA says gas prices jumped this week after crude oil prices settled at a new all-time high Tuesday at $101.88 per barrel.

AAA notes that gasoline prices normally begin climbing in the spring as refineries make the switch from producing winter gasoline blends to an assortment of summer gasoline blends.
