If you thought gas prices couldn't get any higher, think again. According to Triple A and the oil price information, the national average price of a regular gallon of gas jumped to more than four dollars for the first time ever. Wilmington's gas prices haven't hit four just yet. Triple A says gas prices have gone up an average of about thirty three cents a gallon since this time last month. Analysts say that's almost a dollar since this time, last year. By the end of the week, analysts say the average could hit $4.15. "Half of my paycheck goes for gas, and I don't know how we are going to survive,” said Jerold Antonucci of Wilmington. “If you're not rich nowadays, i just don't know how we are going to make it." In North Carolina we're below the curve, with an average of $3.92 a gallon. Gas in Wilmington averages $3.90 a gallon for regular gas.
