Gas prices expected to stay stable through the summer

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) There's good news for those who like to travel, as experts say gas prices should stay steady for the rest of the summer.

Erin Roth, the Executive Director with the Wisconsin-Minnesota Petrolium Council, says he is surprised prices of crude oil hasn't gone up with the conflict in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, but says since they haven't yet, he doesn't expect them to go up now.

"Once we get through the 4th of July holiday season and we get closer to Labor Day, historically gas prices start to decline, because people are putting their kids back in school and they are driving less. But we'll have to see what happens, for the foreseeable future gas prices should stay stable," says Roth.

He adds that gas prices typically go back down as the summer comes to an end.
