Record-high gasoline prices are greeting Pennsylvania motorists as they begin hitting the road for the long Memorial Day weekend. The daily Mid-Atlantic AAA survey shows that regular unleaded gasoline was selling above $4 per gallon Friday morning from at least 45 stations in the five-county Philadelphia area.

The highest was $4.299 at a Lukoil station in New Hope, Bucks County, but AAA says that figure and the prices at other stations likely will change throughout the day and weekend.

Spokeswoman Catherine Rossi says AAA has found prices in excess of $4 gallon as average in seven states - Alaska, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Michigan and New York.

The highest price, she says, is in Alaska, where gas is averaging a $4.18 gallon.
