As we begin the Labor Day weekend, AAA reports that drivers will see the lowest Labor Day gas prices since 2004 – the current average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gas is $2.46, although it could vary by state. That’s nearly $1 less than the cost last year! And the lower gas prices are one factor leading AAA to predict a very high number of people hitting the road: it’s expected that 35.5 million people will travel 50 miles or more over the weekend. If you will be on the road, leave early and drive safely!
