Here we go again. Gas prices are soaring and might top $4 a gallon, possibly reaching record highs this summer. Analysts blame the price surge on unrest in the Middle East and seasonal demands.

“It’s awful,” said Harold Metzger of Lampeter, as he pumped fuel into his work car’s tank Thursday outside of East Petersburg. “It’s ridiculous.”

Local prices already have started their climb, jumping 23 cents in just the past week to an average of $3.41 a gallon for regular gas as of Thursday, according to the AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report.
