NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Be prepared to pay 2017's highest prices for gas in August.
AAA analysts say a combination of lower inventories and driving season hitting its peak should push prices higher over the next few weeks.
The average price for a gallon of regular sold for about $2.11 in the metro area August 4. That's up more than a nickle compared to the previous week. A year prior, gas prices were below $2.00 a gallon.
