June 10, 2008|By HEATHER KEELS

HAGERSTOWN -- Gas prices reached an all-time high in Hagerstown on Monday at an average of $4 a gallon for self-serve regular, according to AAA Mid-Atlantic's fuel price-watchers.

That's 99 cents more per gallon than Hagerstown residents paid this time last year, according to AAA's Daily Fuel Gauge Report.

Hagerstown gas prices broke the $4 per gallon mark just one day after the national average reached that milestone, AAA spokeswoman Christine Sarames Delise said.

Gas prices nationally have soared over the past few days largely because of reports that a high-ranking Israeli official warned of an Israeli attack on Iran if that nation fails to relinquish its nuclear program, Delise said in a news release.

In Hagerstown, gas prices jumped more than 3 cents from Sunday to Monday, according to AAA.

According to data on MSN Autos Local Gas Prices application, prices in Hagerstown ranged from $3.89 to $4.19 Sunday.
