With millions of Americans traveling during the Christmas and New Year's holidays, experts do not believe there will be an increase in gas prices, but rather a potential decrease.

Gas prices in Florida have continued to decline and are now below what they were before Hurricane Harvey caused prices to surge in late August, according to AAA. Gas prices in Grand Forks are just under $2.45. It was also just before Labor Day weekend, as Florida residents kept their eyes peeled on Hurricane Irma's forecast path. Gas prices in 2013 were $3.26 a gallon. That's down a fraction of a percent from Monday and 5 percent, or 13 cents per gallon, less than one month ago.

So far this year, the highest average price in Florida was $2.73 on September 9 and the lowest was $2.13 on July 17.

"As long as demand for gasoline continues to weaken, gasoline inventories will continue growing and it'll be the gift that keeps on giving", he said. The U.S. average is almost 20 cents higher than this time previous year.

In Rhode Island, gas prices are 12 percent higher this year than they were last year when the average price of gas was $2.24 per gallon. The national average has gone up 18.4 cents since past year and is also down 11.9 cents since last month. "At 20 cents more per gallon than the same time a year ago, pump prices don't seem to be a deterrent for today's travelers".

Gas prices have dipped a bit in MA, just ahead of Christmas.
