— If your Easter weekend plans include travel in the Triangle, you can expect to pay about $3.26 per gallon for gas. That is 80 cents more than the average just one year ago.

Prices in the middle of the state fall in the middle of the range.

The highest average price recorded Friday was in Wilmington, where some stations were charging $3.30 per gallon.

The cheapest prices statewide are in the Fayetteville area, where the average price per gallon was $3.24.
