COLUMBIA, SC (WOLO)-- Gas prices nearly doubled over the week, prompting concern from drivers.

Here in the midlands, ABC Columbia news found prices ranging from $3.29 a gallon to $3.45 a gallon.

That's nearly 30 cents higher than prices were two weeks ago, when midlands drivers were paying an average of $3.08 per gallon.

Experts say that prices could spike even more as we near August, then the Labor Day holiday.

How is a nearly 30-cent rise in prices on $3 gas "doubling"? And it's "Midlands," not "midlands."

At least learn a LITTLE math. $3.08 x 2 = $6.16, not $3.45. A 27 cent rise is about 9%. And what "experts" forecast this spike? Like to know if they are legitimate or just some off-the-wall twitter claim.
