March 7, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY —
Motorists are starting to get worried about the possibility that the price of gas could rise as high as $5 per gallon within the next few weeks throughout the area.

Punxsutawney gas prices skyrocketed 16 cents per gallon this week, said Bevi Powell, communications director for East Central AAA.

The average price for a gallon of self-serve, regular unleaded gasoline has risen to $3.53 per gallon, she said.
Powell said it is hard to predict if the price of gas will actually rise to $5 per gallon.
