    Gas Prices Fall for Memorial Day Weekend

    Gas prices are falling just in time for Memorial Day weekend.

    AAA Mid-Atlantic said Friday that the price drop and a summer-like forecast after a long winter and rainy spring are motivating people to travel.

    Nationally, regular unleaded gasoline is averaging $3.81 per gallon, 8 cents less than last week, but more than $1 higher than one year ago.

    Across Maryland, regular unleaded is averaging $3.83. That's 10 cents cheaper than a week ago, but more than $1 higher than last year. AAA is seeing the state's highest prices in the Washington suburbs, with an average of $3.87, and the lowest prices in Salisbury on the Eastern Shore, with an average of $3.68.

    In Virginia, the average price is $3.72, down 10 cents from a week earlier.  In the Virginia Beach area, the average price is $3.75.

    The District's average price is still above the $4 mark at $4.07.  That's down from $4.13 a week ago.  A year ago the average was $2.89.
