Gas prices rise on strong demand, higher oil prices
A lot of people are choosing to drive over flying despite high gas prices: Lee Abbamonte
Travel expert Lee Abbamonte discusses how millions of Americans are traveling by car this Thanksgiving on ‘Fox Business Tonight.’
Gas prices have steadily begun to increase due to a rise in fuel demand coupled with higher oil prices, according to AAA.
The national average for a gallon of regular gasoline notched $3.44 on Tuesday, according to the automobile club, which noted that drivers are taking advantage of the milder weather in much of the country "by fueling up and hitting the road."
AAA spokesperson Andrew Gross also noted that "with the cost of oil hitting $80 a barrel, there is a lot of upward pressure on gas prices at the moment."
Gross said oil prices seem to be increasing on upbeat global economic news.
