Delaware gas prices are at their lowest point since January, making a 4th of July getaway more affordable.
AAA Mid-Atlantic says Delawareans are paying about $3.32 for a gallon of unleaded regular. The average price is $3.25 in South Jersey, and $3.41 in Philadelphia’s Pennsylvania suburbs. “AAA is predicting a record-tying 42.3-million Americans (up 4.9-percent from a year ago) will be traveling, a level not seen since 2007,” AAA Mid-Atlantic Public Affairs Specialist Jana Tidwell said. “Decreased fuel costs since a 2012 peak in early April (more than 50 cents a gallon in most areas) and the ability to extend the holiday over one or two weekends are two factors impacting this year’s projected travel increases.”
