Gas prices in OH are on the rise

Pittsburgh gas prices unchanged; could hit $3 per gallon nationally

While rising gas prices are never good news for motorists, the expected uptick in Memorial Day travel does, however, mean more revenue for Johnson City and the surrounding region, according to Convention and Visitors Bureau Director Brenda Whitson, who expects many to come through the area during the weekend. The national average for gasoline was $3.66 in 2014 and is now $2.87.

According to AAA Travel and Publishing, 36.6 million will drive; 3.1 million will fly (nearly 7 percent higher than 2017); and 1.8 million will travel via train, bus and cruise ship.

DeHaan says a portion of it has to do with President Trump's decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal, but more about supply and demand.

DeHaan told 24 Hour News 8 the price of crude oil, which is now above $70 a barrel, is the biggest factor in the gas price spike.

In nine states, the average price is $3 or more and a few more states are likely to join that list, she said. The nation's most expensive gas, as is the usual, can be found in California, with an average price of $3.69 on Monday.

The nation's top 10 states with the largest weekly increases are: OH (+15 cents), Missouri (+12 cents), Kentucky (+11 cents), Minnesota (+11 cents), DE (+10 cents), Florida (+10 cents), Colorado (+9 cents), Maryland (+8 cents), Oklahoma (+8 cents) and West Virginia (+8 cents).

Ireland 64/0 following on, 116 runs behind Pakistan at stumps
But at close of play at 7pm, Ireland were 64 without loss in their second innings, and suddenly Test cricket seemed a whole lot... Pakistan declared its first innings on 310 for 9 in the only Test match against Ireland on Sunday after playing 96 overs.

Sunday's national gas price average is $2.87, which is up six cents in the last week, up 17 cents in the last month and 53 cents higher than this time a year ago. "A strong economy and growing consumer confidence are giving Californians all the motivation they need to kick off what we expect to be a busy summer travel season". California gas prices are almost 70 cents higher compared to previous year, due to expensive crude oil, record gasoline demand and shrinking global supply.

Gasoline also will be its most expensive in years, but that won't be enough to slowing the traveling.

Nashville- $2.65/g, up 2.6 cents per gallon from last week's $2.62/g.

The cheapest gas Monday in Sacramento, according to Gas Buddy, was $3.25.

Automobiles: More than 90 percent of OH travelers (nearly 1.5 million), will drive to their destinations this Memorial Day, 4.6 percent more than a year ago.
