Gas prices are up again

Gas prices have been on the climb recently.

Including the change in gas prices in Chattanooga during the past week, prices on Sunday were 52.9 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 7.9 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.

Crude oil prices continued to move up this week following President Donald Trump's decision to re-impose economic sanctions on Iran and withdraw the USA from the Iran Nuclear Deal.

Memorial Day weekend, which AAA calls the unofficial kickoff of the summer travel season, is less than two weeks away, and AAA says more than 41.5 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more from home over the holiday weekend.

"Gas prices are their highest in years, yet that doesn't seem to be slowing motorists down", said Mark Jenkins, spokesman at AAA in Tampa.

At the start of last week, the average gas price in Florida was $2.73 per gallon.

Gas prices throughout Florida averaged $2.82, up almost 10 cents for the week and the highest since November 2014.

On the plus side, AAA says airfares are down seven percent as compared to last Memorial Day, with an average price of $168 for a round-trip flight along the top 40 domestic routes and vehicle rental prices are down 11 percent.

AAA Michigan surveys daily fuel prices at 2,800 gas stations across the state.
