Gas prices reach record high in Philadelphia
The pain at the pump is real.
- That's higher than the state average of $4.23, and well up from the city's $3.67 average last month.
- The invasion pushed oil prices up $24 a barrel last week — which comes to a 60-cent swing at the pump.
- Meanwhile, the U.S. and European countries are eyeing a ban on Russian oil imports.
What's ahead: Don't expect prices to drop soon.
- "Pump prices will likely continue to rise as crude prices continue to climb," AAA said in a news release.
