Gas Prices Could Reach $4 Per Gallon by Summer [POLL]

The current average of $3.49 per gallon marks a dramatic increase in prices over the last several weeks.

Residents across the Commonwealth may have noticed a steady hike in gas prices over the last several weeks. 

In a report on Monday from AAA Southern New England, self-serve pumps are currently charging an average of $3.49 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline, according to MyFoxBoston.com.

The current average marks the seventh week in a row of continued increases. 

What's more, that current average is $.38 more than it was the same time last year. And prices are expected to hover around $4 per gallon by the time summer hits. 

This will undoubtedly affect residents who travel by car to commute to work daily. As such, we're wondering how this rise in gas prices could affect you. 

Let us know your thoughts in today's poll and weigh in with comments below.

Trolls also live under bridges, and occasionally jump out to scare people. It's pretty comfortable under here. Reverend E. Raleigh Pimperton III

I believe the title of this article is wrong: $5./gallon by this summer would certainly more correct.

Now we are treated to Obama deriding the oil companies while campaigning in New Hampshire at taxpayer expense. Did he compliment them when prices were lower? Not hardly. Reverend E. Raleigh Pimperton III

The oil companies pay Rep. Joe Barton for compliments and apologies and he doesn't disappoint.

Barton's just representing his constituents in Texas. They produce oil down there, ya know. Reverend E. Raleigh Pimperton III
