Even though gas prices are on the rise, it’ll be the least you’ve paid at the pump on Memorial Day Weekend in nearly 20 years, according to AAA.
At the start of the Memorial Day work week, the national gas price average is $1.87. The last time the national gas price average leading into the holiday was under $2/gallon was 17 years ago in 2003.
“Gas prices around Memorial Day have not been this cheap in nearly 20 years. However, as the country continues to practice social distancing, this year’s unofficial kick-off to summer is not going to drive the typical millions of Americans to travel,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson. “Despite inexpensive gas prices, AAA anticipates this year’s holiday will likely set a record low for travel volume.”
This year is the first time in 20 years that the AAA will not issue a Memorial Day travel forecast due to COVID-19 impacts.
