July 4th gas hasn't been this cheap in years

Gas Prices Falling in Time for Holiday

Motorists have something to celebrate other than our independence this July 4th holiday: the national average gas price of $2.23 is the lowest on record for the year, according to a release from AAA Northeast.

The cheapest gas on average is in South Carolina, Oklahoma and Indiana.

Not only are July 4th travelers experiencing great driving weather, they are getting a break on gas prices as well. That can not be said for the West Coast where gas prices are inching near $3 per gallon. In Florida, roadway traffic is expected to significantly increase with the influx of tourism and the over 2.3 million Floridians who are expected to travel - many of whom will likely be traveling to places like Orlando, Daytona, Miami, and other major tourism hot-spots within the state. Pittsburg experienced the largest price decrease, falling four cents to $1.99. Experts said prices will start inching higher soon. The state was averaging $2.21 a year ago at this time.

Meanwhile, the per-gallon price in Broward County on Monday was $2.22, 5 cents less than a week earlier.

Mazda recalls 227814 vehicles for faulty parking brake
The problem affects only cars with a hand-operated parking brake lever system, according to documents posted Friday by the U.S. Dealership service technicians will check the rear brakes for corrosion, and replace the calipers if corrosion is found.

That's an increase of 1.25 million travelers or 2.9 percent over past year, making ti the most traveled Independence Day since AAA has been counting.

Gas prices continue to drop because of increased inventories and lower demand nationally, even though holiday travel usually prompts price increases at the pump.

AAA has more than 331,000 members in Kansas.
