Gas to climb closer to the $4 mark

By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The pain at the pump followed us into the new year and could be around for a while.

Experts predict gas price could continue to climb closer to the $4 mark.

That's not good for drivers, some of whom say they are already feeling the strain on their finances.

Monday's national average up seven cents from a week ago to $3.07. 

"I just buy it I know I have to have it to go to work so I just buy it," said Alenena Evans, driver.

"I just fill it up whenever and I don't even look at the price anymore I pull up to the pump because I need it," said Tammy Price, driver.

The highest price in Albany was $4.30 cents in September of 2008. Looking at a 10-year comparison gas prices since 2001 have doubled.

The national average this month a decade ago was $1.52.
