Lowest gas prices for holiday in 5 years reports AAA Mid-Atlantic
TRENTON (AP) — Motorists hitting the road this Memorial Day weekend will see the lowest gas prices for the holiday in five years.
AAA Mid-Atlantic says the while the average price of a gallon of regular gas in the state on Friday was $2.53, up two cents from last week, prices are down from a year ago. In 2014 drivers in New Jersey paid $3.50 for a gallon of regular gas.
The national average price on Friday was $2.74, up 5 cents from last week. But that's also lower than the national average from a year ago, when drivers paid $3.65.
New Jersey travel for this weekend is expected to be up almost 5 percent over last year.
AAA Mid-Atlantic says that's a 10-year high in travel volume.
