Fourth of July Gas Prices Hit Four-Year High
Gas prices for the Fourth of July holiday will be the highest they've been in four years. But, the silver lining, if you want to call it that, Independence Day gas prices will be cheaper than they were this past Memorial Day weekend.
The American Automobile Association expects prices to hit an average of $2.86 per gallon.
The Consumer Federation of America says nearly 40 million Americans will travel more than 50 miles this Fourth of July.
