You can expect to pay more at the pump as you get ready to head out on the roads for the upcoming holiday weekend.

Gas prices across all of Mid-Michigan are over $3 per gallon for unleaded gas.

AAA says prices at the pump for the Memorial Day weekend will be the highest they've been for the holiday weekend since 2014.

Several factors have helped drive oil prices higher, including a wave of global economic growth has driven up demand for oil.

Other parts of the country are having to pay much more for gas ahead of the holiday weekend. At least one gas station in New York City had gas priced at $4.99 per gallon on Tuesday.

At least two gas stations in the Bronx area are also selling gas for nearly $4 a gallon.
