In the past week, gas prices have climbed 18 cents, which is the steepest nationwide incline since February 2011.

The national average for a gallon of regular gas is $3.54, while the average in the Midstate is $3.63.

According to abc News, this latest hike was caused by a number of factors, including the current stock market surge.

In Pennsylvania, prices aren't the only thing that could go up. Sources tell abc27 Governor Corbett plans to unveil a new transportation package as part of his yearly budget address Tuesday, which would lift a decades-old tax cap on a gallon of gas in order to raise billions for the state's aging infrastructure.

"We'd hope it'd go to making the roads better," driver Alicia Harris said. "But it's a scary thing because if there's no cap -- how high is it going to go?"

In terms of 2013 averages, AAA doesn't expect they'll hit last year's highs, which would keep them well under $4 per gallon.



Maybe Governor Corbett will suggest everybody to "Close there eyes" while paying for the gas

Higher energy price = slower economy.

Hope Tommy-boy gets used to be calling "One Term Tom" because he's digging his own Political grave.
No repeat vote from me!

You keep saying Corbett will lose the election, then when I ask you who's going to beat him, it's a stupid question? Ok, whatever you say there, Dancer. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Do you think I care what an Obama supporter thinks of me? Because I think I've made it pretty clear what I think of Obama supporters.
