Tampa, FL – Motorists in the southeastern United States should find the lowest Labor Day gas prices in a decade. The current state average prices of $2.31 in Florida and Georgia, and $2.17 in Tennessee are $1.06, $1.02, and $1.04 cheaper than the price during last year’s holiday respectively.
“Low gas prices are added incentive for Americans to take a road trip this Labor Day weekend,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Low gasoline prices are an added boost in disposable income, giving travelers more money to spend on lodging, shopping, and dining out.”
The final summer holiday to have a 1% increase from 2014
Tampa, FL – AAA Travel projects 35.5 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more from home during the Labor Day holiday weekend, the highest volume for the holiday since 2008 and a 1 percent increase from the 35 million over 2014.
This will mark the fourth consecutive year of overall travel growth for the Labor Day holiday period, and the seventh out of the past nine years to see year-over-year increase in volume.
Oil prices dip below $40.00 a barrel for the first time since 2009
Tampa, FL – Plunging oil prices continue to place downward pressure on prices at the pump. Nationally, gas prices have fallen 7 cents from a week ago, and 14 cents from a month ago. Should oil prices remain at or below their current rate, the national average could dip below $2.00 per gallon by the end of the year.
In the southeastern U.S. the price at the pump has fallen 4 cents in the past week, and more than 20 cents in the past month.

Pasadena, CA – Numerous recent blogs and web postings are erroneously claiming that an asteroid will impact Earth, sometime between September 15th and 28th, 2015.
On one of those dates, as rumors go, there will be an impact — “evidently” near Puerto Rico — causing wanton destruction to the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the United States and Mexico, as well as Central and South America.
That’s the rumor that has gone viral — now here are the facts.
4th quarter Gas prices could average $2.11
Tampa, FL – The price of oil is on its longest weekly slump of the year, after reaching the lowest closing price since the ‘Great Recession’. This continues to put downward pressure on the price of gasoline, which dropped another 2 cents last week in the southeastern U.S.
“There continues to be a surplus amount of oil in the global market which is expected to keep prices of both oil and gasoline on the low end through the rest of this year,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Gas prices did not fall as fast last week as they have in recent weeks, but that is to be expected because we are still in the middle of the peak driving season. Gas prices should fall even faster in the fall when school is back in session.”
Oil prices fall below $44.00 for the first time since mid-March; pump price decline to continue
Tampa, FL – The oil price plunge continues to place downward pressure on prices at the pump. Gas prices in the southeastern U.S. have fallen 5-6 cents in the past week, and more than 20 cents in the past month.
The average price of gasoline has declined 21 cents during a period of 33 consecutive days in Florida, and 32 days in both Georgia and Tennessee.
Average U.S. Gas Prices to Possibly Drop Another 15 Cents in August
Tampa, FL – Gas prices are falling at the fastest rate since January due to cheaper crude oil costs and the resolution of some refinery issues in the western United States. The national average price of gas has dropped for 18 days in row for a total of 12 cents per gallon. Today’s national average price of gas is $2.65 per gallon, which is the lowest average for this time of year since 2009.
“It feels good to see gas prices drop during the middle of the busy summer driving season,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Millions of people are hitting the roads right now and these gas savings should make their trips more affordable.”
Oil prices fall below $50.00 for the first time in nearly four months
Tampa, FL – The national average price for gasoline dipped 4 cents last week, and prices in the southeast fell even further. Pump prices in Florida, Georgia and Tennessee are down 5 cents compared to last week, after falling for 18 consecutive days.
“Motorists are finally getting some consistent relief at the pump thanks to declining oil prices,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “By this fall, prices could creep closer to levels seen at the beginning of this year, possibly even below $2.00 a gallon in some markets, as long as oil remains low.”
Knoxville, TN – Older adults who have stopped driving are almost two times more likely to suffer from depression and nearly five times as likely to enter a long-term care facility than those who remain behind the wheel, according to a new report released by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety and Columbia University.
The study examined older adults who have permanently given up driving and the impact it has on their health and mental well-being.
Tampa, FL – Gas prices dipped last week after the price of oil fell to its lowest level in 3 months. West Texas Intermediate settled below $51.00 a barrel for the first time since April and gas prices are responding in kind.
“The price of oil continues to be the main driver of gas prices, said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “As oil gets cheaper, it becomes less expensive to produce gasoline, and those savings are reflected in prices at the pump.”
