U.S. gasoline prices have jumped to the highest levels ever for the middle of February.

The national average hit $3.12, but in West Virginia prices are spiking to $3.20 per gallon, about 50 cents above a year ago.

The price is about 6 percent higher than on this date in 2008.

In 2008 prices hit an all-time high of $4.11 per gallon, higher in some areas.

Although gas prices are expected to rise, most experts aren't expecting a repeat of 2008.

Experts expect gas to reach $3.50 to $3.75 per gallon this spring.
