Holiday drivers will notice gas prices inching higher

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

As you pack your car and head out of town for the Memorial Day holiday, be sure you have a few extra dollars in your wallet to cover your gas costs.

Gas prices across the country are 15 cents higher than they were just a month ago. 

In South Mississippi, gas prices at the pumps are flat.  According to AAA.com, the average price for a gallon of gas on coast is $3.29.  That's what it was a month ago.  And it's about two cents less than gas cost last Memorial Day.

If you head north, pump prices are about the same.  Mississippi's current average price for a gallon of gas is also $3.29.  The statewide average for a gallon of gas last Memorial Day was $3.40.

The WLOX app always monitors where you can find the lowest gas prices in South Mississippi.  Currently, that price is $3.14 at the Sam's Club on Landon Road in Gulfport.  To have that information at your fingertips, be sure you've downloaded the WLOX app.
