Gas up as oil prices rise

Gas prices have risen to their highest levels since last spring.

Drivers across the U.S. paid more for gas every day this week and it looks like they could pay a little more before prices level off.

According to AAA, the average price of a gallon of regular is at $2.78 Friday. That's 1.4 cents higher than Friday and 31 point cents more than a year ago.

The price of gas is tied to rising oil prices.
