Gas prices rose over $3 per gallon last week in Cadiz – a first-time occurrence – and apparently, the end to the rise is far away, according to industry analysts.

“Consumers haven’t seen the worst of it,” Ben Brockwell told Money Magazine, who is the director of pricing at the Oil Price Information Service and said that seeing $4 a gallon at the pumps is not so far-fetched, or that far off.

Consumers weren’t immediately affected by the spike in price, which took effect last Wednesday. However, as the holiday weekend drew closer, motorists began to feel the punch at the pump.

Kentucky Tourism Director of Communications Cindy Briscoe said that travel figures for the holiday were sketchy as best, but the recent gas jump has given an unusual opportunity to the Department of Tourism.
