Gas Prices Low This Holiday
Written by andrew-rossi on June 30, 2017
With motorists gearing up for the July 4 holiday weekend, many are preparing to hit the road. It is, after all, the busiest driving holiday of the summer.
Travelers are fortunate this year, with gasoline prices the cheapest they’ve been over the 4th of July holiday since 2005. And according to the website GasBuddy.com, for the first time in almost 20 years, gas prices on July 4 will be lower than where they stood on New Year’s Day.
Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy senior petroleum analyst, says he is thrilled to see gas prices falling just in time for the most-traveled summer holiday. Average retail gasoline prices in Wyoming have fallen 6.2 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.27/g yesterday. This compares with the national average that has fallen 2.6 cents per gallon in the last week to $2.25/gallon.
