Drivers to save big at the pump this Labor Day weekend

Posted: Updated:

GasBuddy finds drivers this holiday weekend will see the cheapest Labor Day prices at the pump in more than a decade, leading to savings of roughly $1.4 billion over the four-day weekend.

Currently, GasBuddy says there are 19 states already selling gas below $2.00. Nationally, gas prices are about 21 cents below where they stood one month ago.

For the holiday weekend, analysts predict nearly 70% of the nation's gas stations will be priced below $2.50 a gallon.

GasBuddy says drivers in the south will spend the least, including South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee.

Nationally, more than 8,000 stations are currently offering gas at $1.99 a gallon, or cheaper.
