(York, PA) -- Gas prices are continuing to surge throughout Central Pennsylvania. As of yesterday, the state average is three-42 per gallon. The national average is three-22. Triple-A officials say the surge in price is due to last week's increase in oil prices, which was the highest in years as they surpassed 80-dollars per barrel. Experts believe prices will surge again and Pennsylvanians could end up paying three-50 per gallon.
