TAMPA, Florida — We may soon see some of the highest prices at the pump ever this year. Some forecasts say $5 dollars a gallon may not be far away.

So if you’re sick of gas prices, here are some electric options.

Pains at the pump may be getting worse. The average price for a gallon of gas right now is about $3.65.

“Right now, gas prices are expected to hit $4 by May, which is when we saw the peak price, which was in May [of 2008] as well,” says Jessica Brady with AAA. Her office has received several calls about electric cars, since gas prices started creeping up.
