How gas prices have changed in Ohio in the last week

Memorial Day Weekend looms, while gasoline prices remain essentially unchanged over the last week. That's as a near-record number of Americans are expected to hit the road for travel between Memorial Day and Labor Day, according to GasBuddy's holiday forecast.

Fortunately for travelers, that forecast includes an expectation that the average price of gas per gallon will hover in the $3 range this summer. The last time Americans saw a significant spike in gas prices over the summer month was in 2022 when the Russian invasion of Ukraine drove prices to record levels.

Meanwhile, AAA says gas prices could tick up slightly over this weekend due to the increase in demand but expects that to be temporary.

"This week's move by the Biden Administration to sell off the million barrel Northeast Gasoline Supply Reserve might help stave off any regional pump price surges," AAA spokesperson Andrew Gross said in a statement, "but likely won't move the national average that much."
