Gas prices in northeast Ohio hit $4 mark: Why the rise?

CLEVELAND - Gas prices have been inching their way to $4 a gallon this spring and overnight Tuesday, many stations displayed prices at either $3.99 or $4 a gallon in northeast Ohio.

Early Tuesday morning, NewsChannel5 crews spotted prices in Westlake at $4.09 at the Sunoco on Dover Center and Detroit Avenue. A Shell station in Cleveland at West 117th and I-90 was selling a gallon of regular gas at the same price.

We spotted other prices close to the $4 mark. The GetGo and BP in Broadview Heights at Route 82 and I-77 was selling a gallon of regular for $3.89 and the BP on Chester Avenue near 30th in Cleveland was at $3.99.

AAA reports the higher prices are a result of refinery maintenance and other production issues in the Midwest.
