Gas prices skyrocket across the United States to their highest level since late 2014 with shortages predicted in the run-up to the 4th of July holiday weekend.

According to AAA, the national average on Tuesday is about $3.11 per gallon and by this weekend, that figure may rise another nickel.

UPI reports further strains will come when as many as 43.6 million Americans hit the road for Independence Day weekend, which runs from Thursday to Monday, extending a trend that became evident earlier this month as prices ticked upwards.

Gas Prices Skyrocket Ahead Of July 4th

“Today, 89% of U.S. gas stations are selling regular unleaded for $2.75 or more. That is a stark increase over last July 4 when only a quarter of stations were selling gas for more than $2.25,” AAA spokesperson Jeanette McGee said in a statement Monday.

American’s Will Pay the Most to Fill Up For the 4th of July Holiday Since 2014

According to AAA, Mississippi ($2.74), Louisiana ($2.75) and Texas ($2.79) have the nation’s least expensive gas — and it’s most expensive in Hawaii ($4.00) and Washington state ($3.74).

At the same time, California ($4.28) is continuing an unwanted trend of being at the top of the national price scale.


Some stations won’t have any gasoline to sell due to a shortage of delivery drivers, according to UPI, with rising demand and distribution bottlenecks also playing a factor in the shortages.

According to AAA, the highest recorded average price was $4.114 in July 2008.

  1. And Democrats still think the USA is doing great under Biden. Of course, our politicians don’t care because they don’t feel the pinch like we peasants do.

    I’m sure we will read how our leaders celebrated Fourth of July by jetting off somewhere, basking in the sun somewhere, while everyone else are forced to stay close to home because gas prices are making it difficult to go anywhere.

    BTW…I have a feeling the Fourth of July will be next on the Liberal target. They don’t want anything that celebrates THIS Country.
