Running Out Of Gas: Why Drivers Could See Shortages This Summer

Be prepared to pay more at the pump this summer.

Experts are now predicting a fuel shortage is on the way – not because of a supply issue, but rather not enough tanker truck drivers to move the fuel to gas stations.

According to CNN, about 25% of tankers aren’t being used right now because there aren’t enough qualified drivers available.

Insiders expect the national average could top $3 a gallon.

Are you planning any big road trips this summer? Would a jump in gas prices change your plans?
