AAA says the national average for a gallon of regular is $1.96, that’s about nine cents more than a week ago.

The average price for a gallon of petrol is $2.25 in Jamestown, however, some Mobil stations in the area are six cents lower, according to

In Dunkirk, the average is also $2.25 a gallon. The price at the pump in Warren, Pennsylvania meanwhile is $2.35 a gallon.

However, the association says gas hasn’t been this cheap on a Memorial Day Weekend in almost 20 years.

They expect the uptick to continue, because the demand is likely to grow as the economy reopens.
