WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — It’s spring time, and gas prices are growing like weeds.
Drivers in the Mid-Atlantic region and across the country are paying more at the pump as stations switch over to summer blend fuel and oil prices continue to climb.
AAA Mid-Atlantic says motorists in Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey are paying at least four cents more for gas compared to last week.
AAA also warns that gas prices could increase another five to 10 cents ahead of the summer driving season.
