Average National Gas Prices Lowest This Year Leading Up To July 4 Holiday

National gas prices are approaching an all-time low for the year as Independence Day nears, following a trend that has seen prices fall for 24 straight days, according to AAA.

The average price of gas is currently $2.26 per gallon, marking the first time the price has been that low nationally since February. Gas prices in Florida dropped seven cents, the biggest decrease in prices in the South and Southeastern regions.

Despite the dip in prices, AAA anticipates 37.5 million Americans will drive to a July 4th holiday destination, which could result in higher gas prices this weekend.
