FRANKENMUTH, MI (WNEM) -

Gas prices could be on the rise due to a deal reached by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries.

OPEC announced it will cut crude oil production by 1.1 million barrels a day. AAA said this will mean a major bump in prices.

The auto club said it could boost crude oil price by $5 a barrel, which will likely lead to an increase of 13 cents or more at the pump.

"To get on the road and travel, I think it does judge the distance you're going to go. So I'm not happy about it," said Debby Shek, Mid-Michigan resident.

AAA said gas prices are up an average of eight cents in Michigan. With the deal reached they said the prices may go even higher.
