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.

Gas prices are still much lower than in 2013, but drivers in Arizona and beyond still saw the average price creep upwards last week.
Triple-A Arizona reports the average price increased in Arizona by 2.5 cents to $3.425 a gallon. Tucson and Flagstaff had the lowest and highest averages at $3.327 and $3.557 a gallon, respectively.
The national average also increased last week by 4.6 cents to $3.612 a gallon, although spokesperson Linda Gorman said in a statement the end to the upward momentum is in sight.
