Here’s how inflation and rising gas prices are affecting Onslow travel

As the COVID-19 pandemic makes its way into the rearview mirror, Onslow County residents are more than ever ready to get back to travel; however, new obstacles have emerged.

Inflation along with rising gas prices.

Gas prices in North Carolina are up nearly two dollars since last year, according to the AAA. AAA reports that as of June 17, the North Carolina average is $4.63 per gallon, up from last year’s average of $2.88. The current average in Jacksonville is $4.54, up from $2.80 a year ago.

Rising gas prices are deterring many residents from traveling as fares to and from their destinations are nearly double what they were last summer.
