Gas Prices Expected to Rise
DENVER - Drivers may need to prepare themselves for a significant hike at the gas pump that could kick in this week. Industry experts say gasoline prices are expected to increase by up to 20 cents per gallon in the next few days. According to AAA's Fuel Gauge report, it seems that the change may already be happening. The national average on Wednesday was $3.50 per gallon for unleaded gasoline, which was up two cents from Tuesday. Although another AAA report shows retail gas prices were sitting at $3.63 per gallon on average and dropped to $3.47 per gallon last week.
