Taking to the road over Memorial Day weekend? Experts say gas prices will be around $3.00 per gallon – the highest since the 2014 holiday weekend, according to AAA.
According to the United States Energy Information Administration (EIA), the average gas price across the United States for the week of May 17 was $3.11 per gallon. The week before that, prices averaged out at $3.05 per gallon.
Patrick De Haan, head of Petroleum Analysis at GasBuddy, said the effects of the Colonial Pipeline cyberattack and increased demand are to blame.
