Summer 2019 will end the way it began with thousands of Minnesotans hitting the roads over the long holiday weekend. Triple-A Minnesota’s Mark Peterson says:

“Labor Day is the third busiest holiday in the year. Obviously the Fourth of July and Memorial Day go in front of it. But still very, very active. I think it’s going to be even more active with gas prices continuing to be at record lows.”

The average price for a gallon of unleaded in Minnesota is about 2.52 a gallon. Drivers are currently paying nearly a quarter less than they did on Labor Day 2018.
