Gas prices in OH are on the rise

Gas prices in OH are on the rise

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).

Madrid Open: Thiem ends Nadal's unbeaten run
Bertens had already stunned world No 2 Caroline Wozniacki and five-time grand slam champion Maria Sharapova earlier in the week. He also beat Thiem in the final here at Caja Magica a year ago, though that was a bit more hard at 7-6 (8), 6-4.

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.
