AAA: Labor Day gas prices were lowest in a decade
AAA says the summer driving season has ended with the lowest national average gas prices for the Labor Day holiday in more than a decade.
The auto club says the national average gas price was $2.34 per gallon for unleaded on Sunday. The Washington metro area average price matched the national average at $2.34 per gallon.
Gas prices have been lower throughout the summer season compared with last year. AAA says motorists are now paying more than $1 less per gallon for gas compared to the same time last year. Drivers are saving about 6 cents per gallon compared to one week ago and 28 cents compared to a month ago.
In the District of Columbia, prices were slightly higher Sunday at $2.59 per gallon.
