BUFFALO, NY - Drivers are about to be dealing with the most expensive summer driving season in four years.

AAA had the local average at $2.82 a gallon Monday, up 11 cents over the last month.

And experts expect it to keep getting higher, because crude oil is more expensive than it's been in more than three years.

13-percent of gas stations around the country are charging three dollars a gallon or more - so expect to see more of that here in Western New York soon.
