Gas prices across the nation could see higher gas prices because of economic sanctions on Iran.
President Trump announced the new sanctions on Tuesday, May 8.
According to AAA, Americans could see a national average price for gas ranging from $2.80 to $3.00 this summer.
A press release stated the price increases will not be immediate and will depend on how expensive crude oil prices get.
These increases would be on top of prices that are already at their highest since 2014.
As of Wednesday, May 9 national gas prices are averaging at $2.83, Virginia’s prices are about $2.64 and Roanoke prices are $2.58.
