Air in water tank???

I have a relatively small water holding tank (due to the fact the tank is installed in a crawl space). The pressure seems OK...about 50-55 psi at high end and about 27 psi at the low end.

Previously, when a toilet would flush (as an example), the total water consumption would turn the pump on once. Lately, the same toilet flushing would turn the pump on 3 to 4 times!

With pressures being unchanged from before, the pump also comes on for much shorter periods. What was believed to be the single pump (about 4-5 seconds) now is about 1-2 seconds in lenght (the 3-4 times the pump comes on when a toilet is flushed).

Could I have air in the water portion of the tank? It is a Sears holding tank (tank size is about 2 feet in diameter by about 2 to 2 1/2 feet high). How can I drain that air out, should that be the problem?
