American motorists are bracing for further increases in gas pump prices this summer after average national prices rose 12 cents in the past week alone. AAA says drivers are experiencing "sticker shock" as increased summer demand, unrest in Egypt and production disruptions in the U.S. and other countries push up the price of crude oil and gasoline.

While March ended with another increase in the cost of fuel, the average price was at the lowest level in four years.
Arizona drivers paid a penny more for gas last week at an average of $3.40 a gallon, with the national average bumping up 3 cents to $3.566 a gallon. Tucson again had the lowest prices at $3.310 while Flagstaff remained at the high end at $3.533 a gallon.
Despite the increase, AAA Arizona reports the cost to fill the tank in March 2014 was the cheapest since 2010.
