With Labor Day weekend just on a few short days away drivers look forward to taking some needed rest and relaxation time with family and friends. However, the one negative many dread about holiday travel, expensive gas prices. This year marks a unique obstacle travelers as prices have already shot up due to the effects of Hurricane Harvey in Houston. Parv Jandu of Jandu Petroleum in Carlsville and Sturgeon Bay says the recent cost of gas has dramatically exceeded many projected expectations.
Jandu goes on to state that even with Labor Day around the corner gas prices would not have seen this dramatic of a rise. Since Jandu started working in the gas industry, he recalls that his worst price hike ever was $.40, something everyone hopes never to see again.
