Labor Day Gas Prices Will Set Record

Enjoy your holiday weekend!


As they hit the highway for that last road trip of summer, many drivers will pay more for a gallon of gasoline than during any previous Labor Day holiday weekend.

And it isn't all Hurricane Isaac's fault.

In California, the recent Chevron Corp. refinery fire is the main reason the state will see a second straight record high for the gas price average during the traditional three-day ending of the summer driving season, analysts said.
