Gas prices inching higher

August 28, 2018

Enjoy it while it lasts.

That’s the advice from GasBuddy about summer gas prices, the most expensive since 2014.

The average price of gas during the Labor Day weekend is expected to be $2.84 a gallon, 20 cents more than in 2017, a statement from GasBuddy said.

Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy, said the trend most likely will continue.

“Next year may follow in this year’s footsteps with higher Labor Day gas prices, so what we’re upset about this year could bring nostalgic memories next year,” DeHaan said.
