There might be more cars on the road during the Labor Day weekend compared to previous years due to lower gas prices. 

According to a report done by AAA, the national average for gasoline is $2.59, which is 25 cents cheaper than last year. 

Adrienne Woodland is a spokesperson for the company and she said gasoline should remain the same throughout the weekend. 

 

““So gas prices should remain low heading into the holiday unless something unexpected threatens fuel supplies  happens like geopolitical tensions or a hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico,” Woodland said. 

She said the US oil production rate is 15 percent, which led to the low prices. 

Michigan gasoline is 10 cents more expensive compared to the national average, but the price has decreased since this past weekend.
