Gas prices skyrocket, more increases expected

AP - Gas prices skyrocketed across the country Friday, rising an average of 10 cents a gallon in most states, the day after a major surge on the New York futures market.

Gasoline futures rose 9.5 percent Thursday. It was the largest single-day increase not related to an expiring contract since 1984, according to Dow Jones Newswires.
