Gas Prices continue to jump
CHICAGO (AP) -- The average price for a gallon of gasoline across the U.S. is up to $3.67 a gallon.
That's an increase of 12 cents in the past week and 42 cents in the past month.
Oil analyst Patrick DeHaan, with GasBuddy.com, says the reason, as usual, is the rising price of oil.
DeHaan says he's surprised to see the price jump so high in February when demand is normally low, and he's now concerned about what might happen next month.
DeHaan explains, "traditionally gas prices rise anywhere from 40 to 60 cents a gallon in late March through early May." He says if that happens this year "it will easily send the national average over $4.00 a gallon."

KINGFISHER, Okla. (AP) -- Authorities continue to search for a Kingfisher teenager who disappeared after jumping into Uncle John Creek.
Police say 17-year-old Taylor Faine jumped into the creek Thursday and did not resurface. Kingfisher Fire Chief Randy Poindexter told The Oklahoman (http://bit.ly/10s2oB6 ) on Saturday that manmade dams have been built in hopes of finding Faine's body.
Authorities say Faine was swimming with friends in an area where no swimming signs are in place because of dangerous currents in the creek.
