Next time you fill up your gas tank you may be draining your wallet, since Christmas gas prices in Kentucky have gone up by as much as 20 cents.

Economic analysts blame two factors for the increase: tensions in the Middle East and a petroleum industry shutdown in Venezuela, the nation's 5th largest oil exporter.

Travelers say all they can do is hope prices will decrease.
