Giles County gas price average jumped 6 cents this week following a steady week of slow increases.
The gas price average is now $1.95 which is 24 cents more than one month ago and nearly 47 cents less than one year ago.
"The increase in gasoline demand contributed towards the state average's six-cent jump to $1.95. That average may continue to increase ahead of the Independence Day holiday weekend, however, travelers could find pump prices nearly 50 cents cheaper than last year's holiday," said Megan Cooper, a spokesperson from AAA.
AAA did not release an Independence Day holiday travel forecast this year but does forecast that Americans will take 683 million road trips from July 1st until September 30th.
