July Fourth gas prices: How much will gas cost? When should I get gas for my road trip?

  • July 04, 2022

Fourth of July travelers will have some relief at the pump, although gas prices are still at levels never before seen for the holiday weekend. 

The national average for a gallon of gas is $4.86, according to AAA. That is 26 cents more than Memorial Day weekend prices, but it reflects a decline in prices in recent weeks. Gas prices peaked when the all-time record, not adjusted for inflation, was reached June 14 at $5.01 a gallon. 

The drop in prices comes as a record number of Americans are expected to take road trips for July Fourth weekend. But high prices are still a concern for some travelers: 50% of respondents surveyed by the travel planning site The Vacationer said gas prices affected their holiday travel plans. 

Here are 5 things to know before flying, driving this weekend.
