Triple A Predicts Five-Cent-A-Gallon-Rise In Gasoline Prices Over Thanksgiving
Triple A says gasoline prices are high…and holiday prices will be higher. Charles Fishburne reports.
It is one of those harbingers of coming holidays, the AAA gasoline prediction; and it is sort of festive, even when it’s bad.
Van Curen: Yeah, the bad news is that gas prices are going up because those crude oil prices have been shooting up as well.
Windy Van Curen, AAA MidAtlantic.
Van Curen: Here in Richmond, the price stays $2.75 for a gallon of self-serve regular. The Virginia average is about two cents higher, at 2.77.
And for the Thanksgiving holidays:
Van Curen: Possibly go up another five, six, seven, eight cents between now and then.
She says it's not a shortage of oil this time, but weakness of the dollar. She also says gasoline prices probably won’t stop anybody from traveling this Thanksgiving.
