A spokesperson for AAA in Lexington says gas prices are up for two reasons: Hurricane Isaac and this weekend being a holiday.

While this affects drivers, it also impacts businesses.

The Golden Apple in Lexington drives fresh produce to Kentucky from North Carolina several times a week.

An employee said their trucks run on diesel, so they can’t cut back to the cheaper fuel.

And they have to make those trips south or they won’t have a product to sell.

If gas prices keep climbing, The Golden Apple says they might have to raise produce prices $.01 to $.10 per pound.
