Travel Expectations for Fourth of July Weekend

Posted July 05, 2017

Motorists have something to celebrate other than our independence this July 4th holiday: the national average gas price of $2.23 is the lowest on record for the year, according to a release from AAA Northeast. SC continues to carry the cheapest gas in the country at $1.90.

GasBuddy analysts say gas prices will start to go back up, but not too much; they expect prices to remain relatively low this summer. Prices at some stations plunge to $1.49. That's about 7 cents less than at the same point previous year.

Week ahead promises sun, warmth, chance of thunder
Sunday night , there will be a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, with a low of 69, according to the weather service. Saturday night: Showers and thunderstorms likely before 2am, then showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm after 2am.

The statewide average is $1.95/g, flat from last week's average gas price per gallon of $1.95/g. "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".

The monthlong gas-price free fall is a result of skidding crude oil prices in global markets over the past month, spurred by increased drilling production in the United States.

"In the 17 years GasBuddy's been in existence, we've never seen independence day gas prices, on average, lower than they are in the same year new year's day", McTeague says. In June, U.S. prices hit the lowest average for that time of year since 2005, according to the price-tracking website's data.
