Gas prices are already high and the summer driving season is likely to drive them up even more.
The average price for a gallon of unleaded gasoline in Kentucky is $3.91, while the average in Tennessee is listed at about $3.71.
Prices in Hopkinsville average about $3.76, though they range from $3.63 to $3.89—according to gasbuddy.com.
Roger Boyd of “Triple A” Kentucky says motorists shouldn’t be surprised by the recent spike in prices—as it comes as the traditional spring break driving season begins.
Boyd says prices won’t fall anytime soon, considering it’s only a few weeks until schools will be out for the summer.
Prices may not rise above four dollars this spring, but they are not expected to fall any lower than they are now.
