(NBC News) Just like clockwork, gas prices are spiking.
Americans are pumping gas that costs about $3.60 a gallon right now, 30-cents higher than two months ago.
Still, analysts say you should keep it in perspective.
"It was only a few years ago that almost all of us were paying about $4," points out AAA's Michael Green.
Even though they expect another hike of 10-cents or so by May, gas prices are actually predicted to be lower than last summer, largely because of growing supplies.
