CA gas prices are highest in nation ahead of Memorial Day

Gas prices spike before travel-heavy Memorial Day weekend, but travelers so far are undeterred

AAA says that fifteen states, including New York, New Jersey and IL, are already facing $3 average gas prices or higher.

Prices rose 12 cents over the last several weeks to $2.93 per gallon.

Killeen saw the lowest price of $2.64 per gallon for regular gas on Saturday at Star Mart, 3322 E. Rancier Avenue. That's also higher than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $2.37.

All of those drivers out on the road are being greeted by the highest Memorial Day gas prices in four years according to AAA.

Based upon what happened in 2014, travelers will absorb the additional cost and keep on coming, Aliski said.
