BALTIMORE (AP) — Gas prices are falling just in time for Memorial Day weekend.

AAA Mid-Atlantic said Friday that the price drop and a summer-like forecast after a long winter and rainy spring are motivating people to travel. AAA Mid-Atlantic says about 719,400 Marylanders will travel this weekend. That’s a half percent drop from last year.

Nationally, regular unleaded gasoline is averaging $3.81 per gallon, 8 cents less than last week, but more than $1 higher than one year ago.

Across Maryland, regular unleaded is averaging $3.83. That’s cheaper than a week ago, but more than $1 higher than last year.

AAA is seeing the state’s highest prices in the Washington suburbs, with an average of $3.87, and the lowest prices in Salisbury on the Eastern Shore, with an average of $3.68.

    I was getting absolutely sick of paying over $3 at the pump. I decided
    to do some serious Googling in my quest for lower prices, I came
    across this unique buying club called MyGasDiscount.net, I immediately
    joined them and then when I fill up, I keep
    the receipt and enter it in to the website and get a 10% rebate on the amount I spent for gas.
    However, there is an upper limit that you can do each month I think it is
    $200 or something like that — but believe me an extra couple of hundred
    bucks a month savings gives my family our weekly trip to the movies
    again… or you can always buy more gas.. LOL. Here’s the link
