NORWALK - People looking to do a little traveling this summer may be discouraged when pulling into the pump.

A new report from AAA reveals gas prices in Connecticut are the highest they have been since October at $4.01 per gallon, which is 20 cents more than two weeks ago.

Many neighborhood drivers say they're fed up with paying 50 cents more than the national average.

Experts think the prices will continue to rise over the next few weeks due to the unrest in the Middle East driving up the price of crude oil.
