Oil experts: Price of regular gas to rise

STAMFORD - Southwestern Connecticut drivers say they are concerned over gas prices, which are expected to increase in the next few months, according to experts.

The Gulf Station on East Main Street in Stamford charges $2.95 per gallon for regular gas. Local oil experts predict that price will reach $3.50 per gallon this year.

The executive director for Gasoline and Automotive Services of America, Michael Fox, says the reason for the jump in prices is not a result of how much drivers cut back on miles. "It's an issue right now that it's not supply and demand that's causing these gas prices to go up and down," says Fox. "It's really and truly speculator."
