WICHITA, Kansas – If you haven’t headed out the door yet, brace yourself for an overnight hike in the gas price.

The cost in the Wichita area rose 15-cents overnight to $3.55 a gallon.

Many experts are blaming the growing crisis in Iraq and analysts have been predicting the increase for several days.

The jumps at the pump may not be over yet, according to the industry, which says the cost could rise another 10-cents over the next few weeks.
