TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- A holiday weekend doesn't always mean higher gas prices. That's according to Gregg Laskoski, who's a senior petroleum analyst with GasBuddy.com.
According to the website, the average price for a gallon of gas is $3.66 a gallon. That's 17 cents higher than a month ago, but it's also a penny less than drivers were paying a year ago.
Laskoski says gas prices usually rise in the spring, stay fairly high in the summer, then start going down in October. He adds those predications can change if there is a major hurricane in the Gulf Coast.
