Could the Israel-Hamas war affect gas prices in the US?
As the conflict between Israel and Hamas rages on for a fourth day, the war could be affecting gas prices.
The price of crude oil is going up due to the unrest in the Middle East. Experts say they are worried these soaring costs could reach gas pumps in New Jersey and across the nation - all this as gas prices in the state have been decreasing.
Tuesday’s state average is $3.53. This is down from $3.67 a month ago. A year ago, gas prices were around $3.61.
Hundreds killed as war enters 4th day
The war has killed at least 1,600 people, including 11 Americans. Israel is activating 300,000 reservists to join the fight. Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu says the military will attack Hamas with a force “like never before.”
Vigils held in New Jersey
