Many folks in eastern Kentucky are paying around $4.00 a gallon for gas, and it does not look like those prices will be coming down anytime soon.

Gas prices have increased 20 cents during the past month.

Travelers along I-75 are feeling the pain at the pump, and it's causing them to change their way of life.

"You can't go on vacations like you used to did. With prices like this you are spending more on gas than you do for a weeks motel," said London resident James Frazier.

AAA Experts say the amount you pay for gas has to do with the price of crude oil, and that has to do with speculation.

"Fears of a possible confrontation with Iran, and also fears that there might be another economic downturn in Europe," said Christopher Oakford with AAA.

Oakford says once those fears subside, the prices will start to fall.

AAA officials say the best advice they can give is to go wherever gas is the cheapest and don't get attached to one brand.
