Oil prices surge in the past six weeks

Posted:

WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- Higher crude oil prices could mean you'll have to pay more at the pump to travel this holiday season.

Analysts say crude oil prices went up by 20 percent since the beginning of October.

U.S. crude oil prices are reaching the 100 dollar a barrel mark for the first time since mid-July.  

Some analysts believe if crude oil prices continue to trend upward, we could see gas prices top the 4 dollars a gallon mark.
