Filling your gas tank these days isn't cheap, especially if you live in the Utica-Rome area.  Gas prices continue to rise in our area, bucking the trend of lower gas prices in the winter.

According to WKTV, the average price for a gallon of gas in the Utica-Rome area is currently $3.73.  That's an increase of almost thirteen cents from a month ago.

Typically, gas prices are lower in the winter and then increase during the spring and summer.  Last May, we were paying $3.93 for a gallon of gas.  Great, it's only March and we're almost there!

Are you feeling the pain at the gas pump?
