Gas Prices Vary on Memorial Day Weekend
Posted May 26th, 2014 @ 9:00am

Did you complain about your gas prices this weekend? It could be a lot worse. 

On this Memorial Day Weekend, prices are in line with national averages from the past two years.

However, some state rates have soared as high as $4.35 a gallon.

GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan cites refinery maintenance, production issues, and the type of gas consumed for the regional differences.   

Despite the hikes elsewhere, DeHaan says Miami gas prices are looking good. 

"Prices in Miami have been moving down for quite some time.  It's a trend that really started back in about mid-April."

Miami was just above the $3.60 a gallon national average predicted for this weekend.

As for the rest of the summer, Americans should get a steady relief from their bills at the pump. 

"I would say prices will likely continue on their downward trajectory through probably early July or so," said DeHaan.
