Gas prices climbed to a four year high this summer. 

After Americans return from Labor Day weekend road trips, pulling up to the pump may be less painful on the wallet.

The automotive group AAA reports that the average price for a gallon of unleaded gas in Montana stood at $2.94 as of Wednesday.

The national average price was at $2.83 per gallon, according to AAA.

“With Labor Day approaching, motorists could see a small swing towards higher gas prices, but any jump should not last past the holiday weekend,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson.

Last year’s Labor Day weekend saw gas prices spike, but that was due to Hurricane Harvey. Despite no hurricane activity this Labor Day weekend, gas prices will be at their highest point for the holiday since 2014 AAA is predicting.
