Gas Prices At Six Year High

Heading out of town for the holiday weekend? That's gonna cost you. AAA says U.S. gas prices are the highest they've been since 2008. $3.70 is expected to be the national average per gallon by July 4, but many places around here are already at $3.69 or above and I've seen as high as $3.80.

 According to this article by The Hill, the price hike is due to uncertainties in Iraq.
