How could gas prices impact your 4th of July weekend?

Farmers and ranchers may be working the fields this weekend or maybe traveling to a camp or cabin for 4th of July celebrations.

No matter your plan, soaring fuel prices are impacting everyone. The National Average for gas is continuing to go down but is still at $4.85 per gallon. Diesel also went down overnight and is now sitting at $5.77 per gallon.

Robert White, Industry Relations Vice President with the Renewable Fuels Association spoke with RFD-TV’s own Suzanne Alexander and shared how the prices could impact the holiday weekend, if the downward trend will continue, how cutting prices on higher ethanol blends could help, and about RFA’s new FAQ document.
