A website that tracks national fuel prices in the US has claimed that motorists in 45 of the states in the country will see highest ever price of gasoline on over a Labor Day holiday weekend.
GasBuddy. com, which also owns sites like SactoGasPrices. com, said that only the states of Alaska, Colorado, Montana, New Mexico and Wyoming will not record the highest ever Labor Day prices.
Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy said, "When you return to work after the Labor Day holiday, it might be a good time to ask your boss for a raise. Although the end of summer driving season usually sends retail gas prices downward, they've got a long way to go before prices fall back to tolerable."
DeHaan said that the nationwide average is at $3.80 per gallon, which is higher than the same time of the previous year. He also said that eight states in the country have an average price of $4 a gallon or higher.
The gas prices in Chicago was around $4.35 a gallon, $4.15 a gallon in Los Angeles and an average of $4.06 a gallon in New York City, the website showed.
