OH sees cheaper prices for Fourth of July

AAA expects record travelers this 4th of July weekend

The group says 44.2 million people are expected to travel more than 50 miles away from home on USA roads, rails, waterways and in the air during this time, which is 1.25 million more than past year.

It's nearly an entire dollar less than the usual average prices over this holiday and what's more, for the first time in 17 years, Independence Day will bring cheaper gas prices than New Year's Day.

The declining prices occur as a record-breaking 44.2 million Americans said they will drive, fly or cruise between June 30 and July 4 this year, according AAA's Annual July 4th Holiday Travel Survey.

Right now, OH takes the top spot for monthly changes in gas prices from June to July with a 28 cent decrease. On the week, gas prices fell in 46 states. The last time gas was this cheap heading into Independence Day was 2005.




SC continues to register the lowest average in the nation at $1.90, followed by Alabama at $1.96, according to AAA.

"While holiday gasoline demand is likely to reach new highs, it will probably not be enough to cause a significant increase on the price of gasoline in the coming week".

AAA reports that the most expensive gasoline can be found in the City of Chicago, at $2.73 per gallon. GasBuddy spotters put the South Haven average at $2.14, though just one station is selling gas for more than $2.13 a gallon.

Summer is a time when gas prices typically increase in costs, but motorists across New England are continuing to see declines as a result of increased level of both gasoline and crude oil production.
