Gas Prices Are Getting Higher

The cost of driving from point A to point B is getting more expensive.

The energy department says the average retail price of gasline is now up to a dollar and 99 cents.  That's a five cent increase from last weeks prices.

This weeks increase marks the fourth straight week since prices have risen, yet they haven't reached the pear of two dollars and six cents a gallon set in May.

The higher prices at the pump are being blamed on soaring oil costs.
