Gas Prices Sizzle with Summer Heat
When we last looked at soaring gas prices around Memorial Day Weekend, they were a whopping $3.64 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline. Now the average price of gas in Maine is $3.74, according to WMTW.
The Portland television news station reported Monday that gas prices in Maine have increased by 3.5 cents in the last week and are 17.3 cents higher than they were a year ago at this time. None of this is good news for vacationers who want to explore the state or for tourism driven businesses who rely on visitors for summer revenue.
