Gas Prices Soar

UNDATED, Ala. (AP) - More sticker shock at the pump -- gasoline
has hit another record high.

The nationwide Lundberg Survey finds the average price of self-serve regular gasoline his now three dollars, 18 cents a gallon. That's up more than eleven cents from the last survey two weeks ago.

The latest price beats the previous inflation-adjusted record of three-15 per gallon in March 1981.

Gas prices across Alabama have also soared. Regular unleaded averages three bucks-a-gallon; midgrade fuels are almost three-27; and premium costs three-36 a gallon.

According to Birmingham-based AAA Alabama, prices at the pumps, are up about 23 cents a gallon since last month.

The summer driving season begins this weekend with the Memorial Day holiday.
