Transcript for Gas Prices on Rise for New Year's
Gas prices on the rise this morning. Just as millions of americans are hitting the road for new year's. Abc's linzie janis is here to show us. Good morning, linzie. Reporter: That's right. In parts of the midwest, gas prices rose 10 cents in the last week. This morning, the national average, $3.32 per gallon. The estimated one in four americans took a road trip this holiday season. That increase in demand for gas, plus, the rising cost of oil, are blamed for the sudden spike in prices. And they're expected to keep rising through at least next week. The highest prices in the country, connecticut, new york, california, where drivers are paying up to $3.70 a gallon. The cheapest prices in the rockies and the plains. Some drivers there playing barely $3 a gallon. Not good news for so many commuters. Thank you.
