You can expect slightly lower gas prices for Memorial Day weekend than last year.
The national average for a gallon of gas is $2.85, that’s about ten cents lower than a year ago.
In Vermont, the average is $2.80, its $2.74 in New Hampshire, and in New York, the average price is $2.95.
Some drivers are paying more though, like in California where the statewide average is $4.03 for a gallon of regular.
You’ll probably see more traffic too. AAA estimates a record 37.6 million people will be on the roads this holiday weekend, that’s up 3.5% from last year.
Reasons for the jump include consumer confidence and low unemployment.
