With Independence Day week upon us, many people are gearing up to travel to see their friends and family and celebrate with cookouts and exciting firework displays.

For many people who plan to set out on adventures there will be one cost hike that they'll have to deal with. The price of gas is set to be an average of $3.68 per gallon of unleaded. That's an average that is expected to be up 20 cents from last year's prices.

With AAA expecting a record number of people driving to a number of destinations this holiday weekend, it's pretty safe to say that the money will be flowing right to the pumps.
