Gas Prices Hit Labor Day Record
If you drove anywhere over the long Labor Day weekend, you certainly paid for it.
The website gasbuddy.com reports the average gas price for the holiday was the highest ever recorded.
The average Monday was $3.80 a gallon. Gas prices jumped 31 cents in August.
The cheapest gas in the country is in Colorado, New Mexico and South Carolina.
Gasbuddy.com experts attribute the record prices to a combination of Hurricane Isaac, a refinery fire in California, a pipeline leak in Wisconsin and several refinery issues in the Great Lakes.
Experts say prices should get better in late September or early October after the summer demand for gas drops and production begins on cheaper-to-produce winter gas.
