You may have noticed a spike in gas prices.   Triple-A Minnesota’s Meredith Terpstra says the increases are two-fold:

“One there is an increase in demand heading into a holiday weekend. And it is towards the end of summer and people are trying to get in those last-minute trips as they feel comfortable doing so within the limits of COVID and traveling within the country. And also it’s because of Hurricane Laura.”

Terpstra expects prices to level off over the next few weeks.
