STAMFORD - Gas prices are rising again and hitting record levels. Experts say it's directly connected to the crisis in Libya.

Compared to last year, gas prices are about 50 cents higher, and some experts are predicting the prices could break the $4 mark by mid-summer.

Frustrated drivers are encouraged to contact their congressional representatives about making gas more reasonably priced for consumers.
