 (CNN) - Gas prices may put a damper on your celebrations if you're hitting the road this weekend.

According to AAA, prices are expected to be at their highest level in six years.

AAA says the troubling events in Iraq have driven up the price of crude oil.

The national average for gas right now is $3.67 a gallon and is only expected to go up as we get closer to the July 4 holiday.
