Gas Prices Up Slightly

May 31, 2010

Travel was a little more expensive this Memorial Day weekend than last year, with gas prices in the North Escambia area up about 35 cents.

According to the AAA Fuel Gage Report, the average cost of a gallon of regular unleaded is $2.65, up from $2.39 a year ago. In North Escambia, that gallon of gas was at about $2.69,  up from $2.34 last year.

Two years ago, the average price was $3.91 a gallon.
