Holiday Weekend Gas Prices Stay at 5-month Low

July 7, 2013

Travelers returning home from extended Fourth of July celebrations may have noticed lower prices at the pump.

Auto club AAA reports Sunday that gas prices remain at a five-month low. The national average is down 14 cents from a month ago, but they're still 14 cents higher than this time a year ago.

In Charlottesville, the average price per gallon is $3.27.

But AAA warns gas prices might not drop much farther in July. In fact, they might go up thanks to summertime demand, higher crude oil prices and the hurricane season.
