NEW YORK - Hurricane Harvey caused heavy damage to the Gulf Coast, where several major oil refineries are stationed and have been shut down.

So, if you're looking to drive out of town this holiday weekend, filling up the tank will cost you more.

Gas prices have spiked by at least a dime across the country. 

That's according to AAA, which puts the blame on Hurricane Harvey.

AAA says the price at the pump for regular gas in the city is now averaging $2.74.

It's $2.60 across other parts of the state.

The Port Authority predicts four million vehicles are expected to cross its six bridges and tunnels this weekend.

Those traveling by air should expect busy airports and packed planes.

The Port Authority says more than 2.4 million travelers will fly through JFK or LaGuardia this weekend - a more than three percent jump from last year. 

And for those taking the train, the so-called "Summer of Hell" is coming an end at Penn Station, so the rails may be a better option.  

Commuters who have spoken with NY1 say it has not been so bad after all.

"Frankly it's been pretty seamless for me. The Long Island railroad service has been fine through Atlantic Avenue. Coming and going has been great," noted one LIRR rider.

"I feel like it worked out pretty good for me, a lot better than I expected.  I was anticipating the worst, and it turned out pretty good," said another rider.

Regular service on the Long Island Rail Road, Amtrak, and New Jersey transit resumes on Tuesday.

A reminder that Labor Day is a National Holiday, so expect some closings and service changes.

Banks and post offices will be closed as well as financial markets.

Subways and buses will run a Sunday schedule.

New Jersey Transit, Long Island Rail Road, and Metro-North will all operate on Sunday schedules.

Alternate Side parking rules will be suspended and drivers will not have to feed the meters.
