Higher Gas Prices On The Way

(Heathrow, FL) Experts are warning drivers to brace for higher gas prices.

The price of gas is expected to rise as refineries start to shut down for winter maintenance, which reduces supply.

They also gradually switch to more expensive summer blends of gasoline.

AAA predicts the nationwide average will peak between $3.55 and $3.75 a gallon this year.

That’s lower than last year’s high of $3.79, reached in late February.
