Gas prices stable in the Puget Sound
That’s according to the gas-price tracking website GasBuddy.com.
Nationwide, gas prices increased four cents to $3.61, which is still below the local average.
Gas prices are down about 33 cents from the same holiday weekend last year, when gas prices were over $4 a gallon.
“Over just the long weekend Americans saved nearly 300 million dollars over what was spent for the four-day weekend last year,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.
DeHaan says the unrest in Syria seems to only be causing a relatively small blip in gas prices.
