Gas prices rising in time for the long weekend


Eau Claire (WQOW) - Just as many folks are hitting the road for the Labor Day Weekend, gas prices are moving higher.

Gas in Eau Claire is up another nickel, the second hike this week. It's now $3.74 a gallon. But AAA says you'll see more people driving this weekend because gas is still almost 20 cents cheaper than a year ago.  

Fill it up while you can. The risks are for higher gasoline prices ahead. Oil prices are near two-year highs. And a  potential strike on Syria could boost gas prices in the short term.
