NYC gas prices rise ahead of Memorial Day weekend

NYC gas prices rise ahead of Memorial Day weekend

KUSI's Ed Lenderman was live at San Diego International Airport where thousands are expected to pass through for Memorial Day Weekend.

The Ohio Department of Transportation said in a press release that almost 1.5 million Ohioans are set to travel this weekend.

EIA said it expects the summer driving season, which lasts through September, will see an average price of $2.90 per gallon, 49 cents higher than summer 2017.

"It was hard before the prices got to this point", she said.

All that may seem pretty far removed for vacationers that are hoping to kick off the unofficial start of summer relaxing at the beach.

At the time, though, a series of stories assured us that presidents have little to do with gas prices. Confidence in the national economy continues to strengthen and so will the motivation to travel, he said.

The record travel estimate comes despite higher gas prices than at this time a year ago.

Jenkins' advice to weekend travelers is as follows: "Plan ahead".

If you are looking for some advice on how to get the most bang for your buck at the gas pump, Ottinger said, "Make sure your vehicle is ready to go". If you have a passenger allow them to be your navigator.

MHP has issued 2,600 citations and 54 for driving under the influence. "And do wear your seatbelt".

THP Sgt. Charlie Caplinger said too many people died in traffic crashes over the holiday. "The airports will also be busiest on Thursday/Friday and Monday, with those departing and returning from their extended weekend vacation".

A heads up for drivers: if you're taking a road trip this holiday weekend, it's going to cost more to fill up.

So many, in fact, they were let in three hours before the official 12 p.m. opening. This service is available for AAA members and non-members.

Room availability for the Memorial Day weekend is still good, according to many of Jamestown's 16 hotels/motels that collectively offer around 807 rooms.

"People will talk about it, complain about it, but it won't stop them from going", says Holecek. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration campaign concentrates education and enforcement efforts to increase the use of seat belts.

Many commuters will feel the pain at the pump, as gas will cost them an additional $10 a week, said Damon Runberg, state of Oregon Employment Department regional economist. "Always as before, wear your seat belt, don't drink and drive, take your time".

Other advice Chenault gives to motorists, especially with the holiday, is to not drink and drive.
