(METRO SOURCE) Gas prices could be headed toward a record high. A new Triple-A report shows U.S. crude oil prices are up 20-percent since the beginning of last month. That puts the price for a barrel of crude close to 100 dollars, the highest it's been since mid-July. Oil industry newsletter "The Schork Report" says a continued rise in oil prices could lead to an average gas price of more than four dollars a gallon. That would rival the record high of four dollars and eleven cents a gallon seen in July 2008.
