Gas prices rise with start of summer season

Price of gas dipped under $2 a gallon earlier this year

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – As we approach the Fourth of July weekend in a couple of weeks, we’ve been noticing a steady increase in the price at the pump. But the pain at the pump is nowhere near as Intense as a year ago, when the average price for a gallon of regular was more than $3.

But since the price for a gallon of gas dipped under $2 earlier this year, the price has been inching upwards.

Chris Nyman of Agawam told 22News, the price of gas won’t affect his summer travel plans. Nyman said, “I think people are going to travel either way, I don’t think the gas prices are going to stop them. Yes they’re going to have to budget a little bit, but I don’t think it’s going to stop anyone from going anywhere.”

Right now even the gas stations charging the most for a gallon of regular are still comfortably below $3 a gallon plateau.
