COLORADO SPRINGS — The cost of gas has continued to rise across the U.S., now pushing even closer to $5 a gallon, the highest price that American motorists have faced since July 2008, according to the Associated Press.

GasBuddy is reporting the national average is up $0.56 from a month ago and $1.81 per gallon higher than a year ago.

“After a blistering week of gas prices jumping in nearly every town, city, state and area possible, more bad news is on the horizon. It now appears not if, but when, we’ll hit that psychologically critical $5 national average,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy.
