N.C. gas priciest in the lower 48 states

Suddenly, North Carolina has the priciest gasoline in the lower 48 states. Tar Heel motorists were paying an average $3.794 per gallon of regular Tuesday. That's 31 cents more than the national average -- and higher than in any other state this side of Alaska and Hawaii. Industry and government officials say Hurricane Ike is still to blame.
