Gas prices are up across the country to an average of $2.27 as more Americans plan to hit the road this Memorial Day.
Fill up your tanks now folks, economists across the board are saying this upward trend in gas prices is just beginning.
Prices are 21.6 cents a gallon more expensive than last month, but that's still $1.465 a gallon cheaper than a year ago.
