Fourth of July Gas Prices a Mixed Bag

From AAA

Gas prices are a mixed bag this Fourth of July holiday, falling 26 cents in Cincinnati since peaking on June 8, but still about 14 cents higher than what local motorists were paying on Memorial Day.  The current gas price average in Cincinnati is $2.57/gallon for regular, unleaded gasoline.  Gas prices will likely rise over the next few days as residents drive to out-of-town holiday destinations or to nearby barbeques and area firework displays.

AAA expects higher gas prices and economic concerns to keep more travelers closer to home this year.  Approximately 37.1 million Americans will drive or fly 50 miles or more this holiday weekend, which is down 1.9 percent compared to last year.  In Ohio, 1.2 million residents will travel for Fourth of July.
