A spike in driving travel over the holidays has resulted in higher prices at the pumps both nationally and regionally.  The national average for unleaded gas increased three cents to $2.58 on Friday.  In Delaware the price at the pump jumped 4 cents to $2.38 a gallon.  Officials at AAA Mid-Atlantic are watching the situation in the Middle East in terms of possible impacts to crude oil and gas prices, but say right now it’s too soon to speculate.
