“Gas prices remain relatively high here in the northeast, where inventories are lower than in other parts of the country,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director of Public and Government Affairs, in a press release. “Prices continue to fall steadily, however, and that’s good news for motorists planning their last summer driving trip over the upcoming Labor Day weekend.”
