Gas prices are on the rise going into the July 4 holiday, making some travelers a little weary.
Prices in some areas across the region have jumped more than 30 cents overnight and are as high as $3.35 in the most eastern part of the region.
Some customers are saying it is price gouging at its finest.
"I can't figure out really why gas prices at one supermarket is $3.35 and then in another town it's $2.99, and I think somebody's gouging somewhere," said Mike Ratliff of Paintsville.
Kentucky implemented a gas tax on July 1. The increase is part of a state law, tying Kentucky's gas tax to the average wholesale price of gas.
