Tifton-- A shock at the gas pumps today. Prices jumped as much as 16 cents overnight.

In Tifton gas is between 2.30 and 2.35 a gallon today. One store manager told us her company increased their prices twice yesterday afternoon. The increase is being blamed on a new surge in crude oil prices, bringing the prices per gallon to nearly $64.00 a barrel.

"It just kind of makes you want to stay at home, and maybe not drive that personal car as much. Running the kids around town and everywhere it kind of gets real expensive," says driver John Brooks.

According to AAA, the current national average is $2.35. That's also their highest recorded average for a gallon of regular unleaded gas. In Georgia the average is currently $2.26.
