If a road trip is on your agenda this Memorial Day weekend, you might be happy to hear that it will be a little nicer on your wallet compared to last year.
You might be pleasantly surprised at the pump this weekend if you’re filling up before a Memorial Day road trip: Gas prices are on a downward trend.
According to AAA, nationally, a gallon of regular gas cost around $4.60 last year.
This year, that same gallon of gas costs about a dollar less, around $3.57.
That gallon of gas is even cheaper if you’re driving in Virginia. The average there is about $3.34.
In Maryland, that average is about $3.50. In D.C., the average is a little higher than nationally, at $3.64, but that’s still a deal compared to last year.
AAA projects this year to be the third-most-traveled Memorial Day weekend since 2000.
