The good news? The weather is finally getting warmer. The bad news? Gas prices are going up.

According to AAA, the average price of a gallon of gas has gone up 13 cents to $2.66 - the highest average in more than a year. However, the spike may be temporary - many oil refineries had to close last week due to the severe winter weather in Texas and other states. AAA expects the price to go back down after oil production returns to normal.

Have you noticed gas prices going up? Where do you think they'll be by the time summer arrives?
