Gas prices are up but still cheaper than usual
Gas prices are ticking up, but not enough to cause much pain at the pump.
AAA says the national average for a gallon of regular is $1.96. That’s about nine cents more than a week ago.
But the association says gas hasn’t been this cheap on a Memorial Day Weekend in almost 20 years. AAA expects the uptick to continue because the demand is likely to grow as the economy reopens.
