Gas Prices Hit Seven-Year High Ahead Of Memorial Day Weekend
May 28, 2021 2:13PM EDT
Many people are planning to hit the road this weekend for the first time in more than a year – if they can afford to fill up their tank, that is.
Gas prices have surged to their highest point in 7 years, due to a variety of factors – including the recent pipeline hack, a lack of tanker truck drivers, and increased demand as people venture out of their homes.
An estimated 34 million motorists are expected to hit the road this weekend.
What will we do if there are more gas shortages this summer? Do you plan on traveling this weekend?
