Gas prices rose for the 20th straight day.
Analysts attribute the surge at the pump to rising oil prices, stemming from fears of shortages resulting from tensions in the Middle East over Iran's nuclear program.
An 11-page document from the International Atomic Energy Agency released Friday reveals the IAEA has doubts about what the Iranian government is telling the world about its nuclear efforts.
We read the study, and while it does not say Iran is making a bomb, it does say that it's rapidly expanding its nuclear activity, tripling its uranium enrichment since late last year.
We consulted a number of experts, including nuclear scientists and former UN weapons inspectors, and they highlighted a few troubling details in the report.
First, Tehran continues to block inspectors from examining a key nuclear facility, one that the watchdog group has been trying to access for a long time.
Second, the report says 19.8 kilograms of natural uranium metal is currently missing.
Iran argues its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes, like cancer treatment, but National Security Council spokesperson Tommy Veetor told us:
"When combined with its continued stonewalling of international inspectors, Iran's actions demonstrate why Iran has failed to convince the international community that its nuclear program is peaceful."
That seems to contradict recent remarks from top U.S. officials.
Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has said:
"The Iranian regime has not decided that they will embark on the effort to weaponize their nuclear capability."
To get the Iranian side of the story, we spoke to Ali Asghar Soltanieh, a nuclear scientist and Iran's permanent representative to the IAEA.
When we asked about the ramped up production of enriched uranium, he said:
"I'm proud to say that we will continue without any interruption. We will never, ever suspend our enrichment activities. Millions of patients in Iran desperately need [nuclear energy], therefore the Iranian government is obliged to fulfill the demand and expectation of its nation. [The IAEA report], I am proud to say, is a clean bill of health of exclusively peaceful nature of nuclear activities in Iran."
Wesley Clark, a retired general and former NATO commander, also came OutFront and he had a different take on the issue.
Said Gen. Clark:
"Well I think this is a standard operating procedure of governments who want to conceal these activities. Put out someone who looks like a credible spokesman, have him deny everything. But where's the missing uranium, why aren't the inspectors permitted in there? Why aren't inspectors allowed there 24 hours a day?
"If Iran were worried about it as it should be, about sanctions and other options that are still on the table and they weren't after a nuclear weapons program, surely they could make a stronger effort to convince the world of their innocence. They haven't made that effort. This is part of a diplomatic stall."
