Record high gas prices and shortages expected for holiday weekend

Americans are suffering a seven-year high in gas prices as shortages are predicted for the Fourth of July holiday weekend, according to Breitbart News

The publication reported that gas is at its highest level since late 2014 and that according to AAA, the national average on Tuesday was $3.11 per gallon. 

The upcoming 4th of July weekend is expected to only exacerbate the situation with national prices likely rising another five cents, at least as usage increases. 

UPI reported they expect around 43.6 million Americans will be traveling for the Independence Day weekend, which will officially run from Thursday to Monday.

“Today, 89% of U.S. gas stations are selling regular unleaded for $2.75 or more. That is a stark increase over last July 4 when only a quarter of stations were selling gas for more than $2.25,” AAA spokesperson Jeanette McGee said in a statement Monday.

“Road trippers will pay the most to fill up for the holiday since 2014.”

Central-Southern United States has the cheapest gas, according to AAA with Mississippi ($2.74), Louisiana ($2.75), and Texas ($2.79) sporting the nation’s least expensive gas.

California, however, leads the nation with a whopping average of ($4.28) but Hawaii ($4.00) and Washington state ($3.74) are hot on their heels. 

The global head of energy analysis for the Oil Price Information Service, Tom Klonza said that he is worried about the holiday weekend, noting that drivers are keeping a much closer eye on their tanks, topping them off more frequently:

“It used to be an afterthought for station owners to schedule truck deliveries. Now it’s job No. 1,” Kloza told CNN. “What I’m worried about for July is the increased demand works out to about 2,500 to 3,000 more deliveries needed every day. There just aren’t the drivers to do that.”

I don’t have a choice. Can’t move as I am too old to do it and I have no family left to help. One thing I do like it the weather most of the time is great.

Joe Biden is not capable in any way of being president. You see and hear of all his disgraceful hypocrite comments failures. He even forgets what he is talking about even with his notes he has been given by his workers. He must be taken out of office before he destroys us more.

Start working at home with G00gle! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday CIXS I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this – 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour.
