Rio Grande Valley (NEWS CENTER 23) — Drivers are feeling the sting at the pump, as gas prices continue to rise.
AAA is reporting that gas prices have rose for 32-days straight.
The national average of regular unleaded per-gallon is at $3.73.
In the RGV it's at about $3.50 per-gallon. Meanwhile, within the past two months crude oil has also jumped 10%.
Damage to some refineries and maintenance costs along with greater demand for gas have also contributed to high gas prices.
