AAA says 2017 July 4th holiday travel will break record

Motorists on the Fourth of July, the busiest summer driving holiday, will be benefiting from the lowest Independence Day gas prices seen since 2005, paying an average of $2.21 a gallon, according to GasBuddy.

According to AAA Kansas, with the record-breaking Independence Day holiday travel weekend underway, average gas prices in Kansas continue their steady decline this summer.

The monthlong gas-price free fall is a result of skidding crude oil prices in global markets over the past month, spurred by increased drilling production in the United States.

In Danville, the current price for a gallon of gas at most stations is between $1.80 and $1.90.

In Honolulu, the average price is $2.90.

For the first time in the site's 17-year price tracking history, prices for the holiday will be lower than New Year's Day.

So far this spring, regional prices are about what they were in February.

Eugene- $2.56/g, down 3.2 cents per gallon from last week's $2.59/g. Though global oil price benchmark rose to $56 a barrel earlier in April, it has cooled off in May and June, falling to about $45 a barrel.

Compared with previous years, the region's pumps are on average two cents cheaper than this time one year ago; 42 cents cheaper than in 2015; and $1.31 cheaper than in 2014.

AAA's weekly survey of prices in Connecticut's four regional areas as follows: Greater Bridgeport/Stamford is at $2.51; New Haven/Meriden at $2.38; Greater Hartford at $2.41; and New London/Norwich at $2.46.
