FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Indiana is seeing a spike in gas prices.

In fact, prices are up 3.8 cents from Monday's average price of $2.91, but surprisingly it's not stopping people from getting where they need to be.

There's some unhappy drivers who say they really wish they didn't have to pay so much to fill up their tanks.

Some drivers were going wherever they could for the cheapest price for gas.

Malik Thomas thought he'd have some luck in Fort Wayne.

"I live in New Haven, and the gas around there is like $2.75, so I'm surprised it's over $3.00 on this side," he said.

Do you think he filled up here? No way.

For other drivers, even though they are disappointed. It's expected.

"It's kind of typical I suppose. I remember back in the day when it was real cheap. You could get $20.00 and fill your car up, and go on about yourself, and get a couple of sodas at the same time, but those days are long gone,"Jeff Snyder said.

The state average gas price is $2.95 and rising.

The highest average last year is pretty close to the current average cost coming in at $2.75.

For now, Snyder says he'll go with the flow and see what happens as the days go on.

Gasbuddy.com says Indiana could see prices as high as $3.20.
