Gas prices have reached their highest March price ever.
The highest gas prices in the area are at a station on Coit Road and LBJ Freeway in far North Dallas at $3.59 a gallon.
That is higher than the nationwide average of $3.52.
The amount spent for a fill-up last year will leave gas tanks nearly a quarter tank short at the current prices.
There are no gas shortages, but that does not help consumers who want the lowest of the high prices.
Some people have fallen victim to theft. A thief emptied the entire tank of a Georgia woman's car.
Across the country gas prices rose 14 cents in one week. Prices are up 39 cents since protests began in Libya.
