Over the weekend gas prices raised five cents to an average of $2.30 for a gallon of regular gas, continuing a trend that has drivers worried.
In the past month drivers have paid thirty cents more for each gallon of gas. Drivers are hoping that the trend is not a sign of things to come.
"It's a little scary, but what are you going to do? You've got to get to where you got to go to. Everything seems to rise with inflation anyway" said driver Stan Chopski.
Virginia gas prices are still below the national average of $2.48, however Charlottesville has the highest average in Virginia second to the D.C. area.
