>The gas crunch

With the warmer weather comes higher gas prices. Like clockwork, the longer the sun says out in the evening, the higher our gas prices seem to be.

The Associated Press is reporting that gas prices could peak at $3.65 within a month.

At the pump, the national average price of a gallon of gas edged lower overnight to $3.373 a gallon, 0.1 cent shy of a new record set Sunday, according to a survey of stations by AAA and the Oil Price Information Service. Still, prices are 0.8 cent higher than Friday, and almost 53 cents higher than a year ago.
