What are gas prices in the US and each state? Today 27 June 2022
Despite the price of fuel gradually coming down, gas is still almost two dollars above where it was last year. Here’s a look at what to expect at the pump.
Last week, President Biden called on Congress to implement a three-month federal gas tax holiday, in a bid to ease the financial burden on American drivers with the price of gasoline almost two dollars above last year. “President Biden understands that a gas tax holiday alone will not, on its own, relieve the run up in costs that we’ve seen,” a White House statement said. “But the President believes that at this unique moment when the war in Ukraine is imposing costs on American families, Congress should do what it can to provide working families breathing room.”
However much such a measure would help ordinary Americans, it is very unlikely to come before an expected record-breaking numbers of Americans take to the road next week for Fourth of July celebrations. The price of gasoline has come down slightly around the United States after topping $5 on average nationally. But even at $4.40 per gallon, as it is in Georgia, the state with the lowest average price, travelling long distances will cost a pretty penny. To help drivers save a buck or two, experts are offering tips to find the cheapest gas near you.
“It’s usually best not use the stations right along the interstate,” said Ellen Edmonds, manager of AAA public relations, when speaking to CNN Travel. Instead, “drive a few miles drive down the road. Look for residential areas or remote rural areas.”
