Gas prices up, but summer driving could be less painful than in recent years

The price at the pump has been climbing, but motorists will still pay less this Memorial Day weekend than they did last year.

Delaware motorists saw gas prices rise four cents to $3.29 a gallon at week's end according to AAA MidAtlantic.

Spokesperson Jana Tidwell says this summer will likely have the cheapest gas prices in recent years.

She says rising crude oil costs are driving the increase in gas prices.
