  • AAA will tow you home for free this Memorial Day weekend

In fact, AAA says, the nation is seeing the highest gas prices going into the Memorial Day weekend since 2014.

Ohio's average gas price according to AAA is $2.91, which is just below the national average at $2.97, but gas in Toledo is higher than most other spots in the state at $2.96.

The state average was about $2.27 per gallon this time previous year, said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis with GasBuddy.

"Today's national average is $2.96 a gallon".

AAA expects more than 41.5 million Americans will travel this Memorial Day weekend, almost 5 percent more than previous year, despite the elevated gas prices and high temperatures.

The weather is the one thing, not only travelers, but also Campground owner say has been keeping people on the go for memorial day. He said gas prices had very little bearing on his holiday driving.

"We want everyone to have a safe Memorial Day weekend, and we urge travelers to make arrangements for safe transportation and to avoid driving impaired", said Matt Nasworthy, Florida public affairs director, in a prepared statement. Milani says the good news is that vehicle rentals are the cheapest they've been in about four years.


"Without a doubt people are noticing and they're feeling the pinch", said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy, a platform that helps drivers find real-time prices. A price of $2.66 per gallon was available at Valero, 1000 W. Stan Schlueter Loop, and CEFCO, 3309 S. Fort Hood St.

In North Carolina, the average price on Thursday was $2.793, the organization said. Gas prices are up primarily due to expensive crude oil, record gasoline demand and shrinking global supply.

Consumer gas prices for the holiday weekend will be the highest they've been in four years and will likely stay that way through the summer, the USA government said.

AAA predicts more than a million Michiganders will be on the roads this holiday weekend, and paying a lot more at the pump.

Friday from 3 p.m.to 5 p.m.

"It's certainly busy. It's not our busiest by any means, that continues to be the Thanksgiving and Christmas time-frame", Lenss said.

AAA expects a five percent increase in overall travel this weekend.
