The price of gasoline this Memorial Day is about where it has been for the past two or three Memorial Days.
Nationally, the average is right around $3.64 per gallon. In Bryan, we’re paying on average, a little more than that this Memorial Day, with prices at the pump at most locations holding at $3.88 or $3.89 a gallon.
Between 2003 and 2008, it should be noted that gas prices more than doubled, reaching an all time high in 2008 in some areas of $4.11 a gallon. Then came the recession, and with it, somewhat lower prices.
According to AAA, drivers are hitting the roads this holiday weekend in record numbers.
AAA also says, across the nation, drivers will likely be paying less in the coming weeks, the result of a typical seasonal decline between late spring and early summer.
