AAA: Good News After Bad?

If you think gas prices are too high, you could soon get a break.

Over the last two weeks, industry analysts have reported a 15-cents-per-gallon hike in gasoline prices.

In the Meridian area, the price of regular unleaded gasoline has so far peaked at a $1.69.

AAA officials attribute the price increase to a lagging supply and increased demand.

Industry officials say prices should begin to drop after Labor Day.
