Gas and some toll prices up this year

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - If you're planning to hit the road for the long holiday weekend, you'll end up paying a bit more for your trip.

As of now, the average gas price in Richmond is $3.72. In Virginia Beach the average is $3.78, and in North Carolina the average is $3.73.

And speaking of North Carolina, you'll spend more on tolls to get to the Outer Banks if you use the Chesapeake Expressway. The toll south of Great Bridge is now $3, and $6 on peak weekends, which is triple the price from last year.
