Holiday Gas Prices

By  | 

You can expect heavy traffic on state highways over the July Fourth holiday weekend travel period.

Triple-A Alabama says soaring gasoline prices are not expected to deter Alabamians from hitting the road.

The auto club's daily survey of gas stations finds another half-cent jump of pump prices.

Regular unleaded averages $2.12 cents a gallon; midgrades average $2.27; and premium is up an average of $2.34.

A year ago, regular averaged a $1.80. That means someone driving to beaches in southwest Alabama from northern counties will pay about $13 more for gas to make the roundtrip this year, compared to last July 4.
