Memorial Day weekend is about to kick off, but the buzz surrounding the holiday is different than usual.
In the past, most people packed their bags for a long weekend getaway, but now, many are wondering if that short trip is even worth the gas money...
As you've probably noticed, it costs a little more at the pump than it did a month ago...

Back in April, the cuts marked a record number of months in which they adhered to the cuts, which was five months in a row. That means oil prices could go even higher.
