Pump Prices Lower This Year For Holiday Than Last

Statewide Iowa — Many people are using the Labor Day holiday as their last getaway of the summer.

AAA Iowa’s, Mark Peterson, says you’ll be happy when you gas up.

He says everything has worked well to keep the prices from going up — including no major summer issues with supply.

Peterson says the average cost of a gallon of gas in Iowa is $2.42.

Peterson said it’s a possibility we could see a jump in gas prices in a few weeks with a little end of the summer bump in demand.

For now, he says you can enjoy the lower prices.
