The average price for gasoline across Northeast Ohio is 16 cents more expensive this week at $2.761 per gallon, according to AAA East Central's Gas Price Report. 

Memorial Day travel will set a record this year on the nation's roadways.  With inventory at an all-year low, drivers may see gas prices inch up this month, especially as refinery utilization remains under 90%.

A survey of Valley gasoline prices from gasbuddy.com found the cheapest local gas is selling in Hubbard, where prices are $2.49 a gallon. Right across the state line in Sharon, Pennsylvania, regular gas is priced at $3.05, mostly due to the state's gas tax which is the highest in the nation.

Ohioans should enjoy the prices while they can. In July the state will impose an additional 10.5 cent per gallon gasoline tax.

The AAA survey found regular gas averaging $2.67 per gallon in the Youngstown-Warren area, compared to $2.57 one week ago.  One year ago, regular gas was selling for $2.75 according to AAA East Central's Gas Price Report.

Gas prices here in the Valley are the second lowest in Northeast Ohio, second only to the Lorain-Elyria region west of Cleveland.

Accross the U.S., average gas prices are down for the second straight week, posting a 2.1 cent decline over the last week to $2.84 per gallon according to GasBuddy data compiled from more than 10 million individual price reports covering 135,000 gas stations across the United States.
