Gas Prices Are On The Rise For This Holiday Travel Week

Jul 2, 2018

Folks heading off on a road trip this Fourth of July holiday should plan on paying more to fill up their tank.

The average price of regular unleaded rose  two cents last week to $2.72 a gallon, according to the American Auto Club (AAA).

Analysts blamed the increase on the rising price of crude oil and concerns of an inadequate supply worldwide.

Which is why, AAA predicts we could see gas prices go up another five to 10 cents this week alone.

The most expensive gas right now is in the South Florida and Panhandle areas.

Jacksonville motorists, however, are enjoying some of the least expensive gas in the state.
