APRIL GASOLINE PRICES UP 5.3 CENTS PER GALLON; BIGGEST INCREASE SINCE MAY 1991

 CLEVELAND, April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The average price of self-serve unleaded gasoline in Cuyahoga County jumped 5.3 cents per gallon during the month of March
 That's the result of County Auditor Tim McCormack's monthly price survey of 56 service stations throughout the county, which reveals that the average price of gasoline is now $1.082 per gallon, up from February's average price of $1.029.
 McCormack reported that it was the biggest monthly price increase since May 1991 when the price of gasoline jumped 5.1 cents per gallon.
 Last month's increase reversed a five-month trend that saw the price of gasoline fall by nearly 15 cents per gallon since November.
 Cuyahoga County motorists last saw an increase of 2.8 cents per gallon in November.
 McCormack said petroleum industry analysts have told him the price hike reflects the start of the peak summer driving period.
 The price fluctuation between the east and west sides of the county appears to be leveling off, McCormack's study reported.
 Gasoline on the western part of the county now averages $1.076 per gallon (up 6.7 cents from last month); on the east side, the price of gasoline averages $1.082 per gallon (up 3.8 cents).
 Last month's price differential showed gasoline costs 3.3 cents more per gallon on the east side.
 Gastown outlets remain the least expensive place to purchase fuel with an average price of $1.053 per gallon. Shell is the county's highest price gas with an average price of $1.097 per gallon.
 The Gastown station in Olmsted Falls was selling gas at $1.029 per gallon, while a Marathon station on Cleveland's east side was selling gas for $1.179 per gallon.
 Persons who pull up to full-service pumps are paying about 40 cents more per gallon to fill their car.
 By law, McCormack's office is mandated to inspect gasoline pumps to ensure their accuracy.
