The break on gas prices looks to be coming to an end.

Gas prices are up about 12 cents a gallon since late January, according to the latest Lundberg Survey.

The average price in the U.S. is $3.51. Colorado Springs remains below the national average at $3 a gallon.

Analysts say gas prices are up because of an increase in the price of North Sea oil. Prices could continue to rise in the weeks ahead.

    Gas prices are rising and will continue as long as we have cowards and idiots like President Obama in office. While the oil from the Canadan pipe line wasn't a quick solution it would have kept prices lower than they will be. Oil is priced based on futures so what they see coming down the pipe line in the near future will cause oil prices to rise and fall. Thanks TREE HUGGERS!!!

    Since the survey was printed, prices have come back down here. Every so often, the gas companies probe to see if they can raise prices. Now the people refuse to accept it. Personally, I've learned to walk most places. I see many others doing the same. Now a tank of gas lasts me about 2 1/2 months. It does not take many "Walking away from big oil" to affect the prices. Even a 5% change in demand will tip the scales towards lower prices.
