WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — It seems like gas prices across the country have leveled off over the past week, but not in North Carolina.

Prices have jumped from $3.83 a gallon one week ago to almost $3.87 today across the Tar Heel state. Gas prices in Wilmington have also increased. Last week, gas was $3.84. This week, it’s up two cents at $3.86.

Micheal Williams says he’s tired of the high prices. He says he drives all over town trying to find the best deals.

“I ain’t got no money,” Williams said. “I travel from Monkey Junction all the way down here to Market Street trying to find out which gas station got the cheapest gas.”

Williams chose to fill up at the Han-Dee Hugo on Market Street today, where gas cost $3.83 a gallon.

    We are not supplying any more oil or gas domestically, so not much has changed. Domestic oil production is off more than 40% from its peak in 1970.

    the supply of gas and crude is not the issue. Look at the weak standing of the dollar in the world economic system.

    There is the number one cause of the high gas prices.

    To the guy who drives all over town looking to save a cent or 2 per gallon. You probably cost your self more in expended fuel than you save at 2 cents per gallon. At $3.80 per gallon, and assuming a 2 cent per gallon savings do the match. You use a gallon of gas which cost $3.80. You purchase 20 gallons with a 2 cent per gallon savings. You just spent $3.80 to save 40 cents.

    Great Business sense and great math skills.

    Sometimes it’s better not to seek that momentary exposure in the media. The real you may come shining through.
