CHICAGO (WKZO) -- Gas Prices have skyrocketed in the last few weeks and jumped again this week to above $3.70 per gallon.

Patrick Dehaan at Gas Buddy.com says the transition to summer blends is one reason, but there are also global factors pushing up oil prices,

He says Middle East tensions in Sudan and Egypt are making oil more expensive, and so is a recovering global economy is creating greater demand and higher prices for crude oil.
