If you are traveling this holiday weekend, Meredith Mitts at Triple-A Iowa says you are among more than 42-million Americans the motor club predicts will be taking trips over the next several days to celebrate Memorial Day.

Gasoline prices are holding steady nationwide, but pump prices have risen in Iowa in recent weeks. The statewide average is now three-43 a gallon, though that’s low compared to the statewide average a year ago at four-22.

Iowa’s average price for gas is 14-cents lower than the national average. Triple-A’s Nick Chabarria says travel figures are approaching pre-pandemic highs.

Chabarria says airfares have jumped 20 to 30-percent over this time last year, but he says you can still find last-minute deals. He says some of the most popular summer destinations are the beaches, the West Coast, Las Vegas, and national parks.
