Californians will pay highest Labor Day weekend gas prices ever
Labor Day weekend travelers face high gas prices
FOX Business’ Lydia Hu on what to expect from Labor Day travel.
Drivers in California will pay more this Labor Day weekend for gasoline than they ever have in the past for this time of year, according to numbers from the Automobile Club of California.
According to the Automobile Club of America (AAA) affiliate, the current $4.39 per gallon price of regular gas in California is a new record high for the Labor Day weekend, up from $3.23 a year ago. The current national average is at $3.184.
Jeffrey Spring, a spokesman for the Automobile Club of California told FOX Business that the prior highest average price for regular on a Labor Day Weekend was in 2012, when it was at $4.16. "That year there were a few refinery fires on the West Coast that crimped supply in addition to high oil prices," he recalled.
