AAA Says Gas Prices Have Decreased Compared To Last July 4th

Gas prices going into Fourth of July near 12-year low

The average IL price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $2.33.

Motorists hitting the road this long holiday weekend will see some of the lowest summer fuel prices in recent memory. That is also down 7 cents from just last month - and even though gas prices usually rise slightly during holidays like this where more travel is expected it is still supposed to be more affordable to travel than ever before. The auto club notes the Great Lakes region is finally experiencing some price stability, and Michigan's price drop over the past week and the last month is the second-largest in the nation.

In Danville, the current price for a gallon of gas at most stations is between $1.80 and $1.90.

Each spring, average US gasoline prices rise 35 cents to 75 cents, usually from February to May, according to GasBuddy's historical figures.


"We're paying about 5 and a half cents less a gallon this week than last week", he said.

San Antonio- $1.95/g, down 3.4 cents per gallon from last week's $1.99/g. Oil prices have rebounded off the previous $42 per barrel low, and now stand near $45 per barrel. Couple this with crude oil prices averaging $46 a barrel, and you have prices at the pump on the decline, according to the release.

Austin- $2.02/g, down 2.6 cents per gallon from last week's $2.05/g.

The declining prices occur as a record-breaking 44.2 million Americans said they will drive, fly or cruise between June 30 and July 4 this year, according AAA's Annual July 4th Holiday Travel Survey.
