You may want to fill your gas tank today.
Gas prices are likely to be going up as a result of Tropical Storm Isaac, which the National Hurricane Center has predicted will become a hurricane on Tuesday.
And that's before the storm has hit. Oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico, and refineries along the Gulf coast, could be impacted or damaged by Isaac.
That means the whole country will be affected at the pump. GasBuddy predicted that gas prices will rise nationwide between 7 to 10 cents a gallon in the next 24 hours. This is just as we head into the Labor Day weekend, a weekend where many take to the roads for end-of-summer fun.
