Gas prices continue to climb

Local

YORK, Pa. (WHTM) – Get ready to pay more at the pump. Gas prices are going up, and experts say it could get worse before it gets better.

The average price of regular-grade gasoline in York and Harrisburg was $2.98 and $3.06 in Lancaster on Friday.

GasBuddy says prices are spiking because oil companies are slowing production for refinery maintenance and making the switch to summer blends, which means less supply.

Prices may continue to increase over the next two to three weeks but should stay under $3 through the summer season.
