PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

As families gear up to travel for Labor Day weekend, prices at the pump are going to provide some relief for many.

Drivers are expected to be paying the lowest gas prices for Labor Day weekend since 2004.

AAA reports that the low gas prices could be due to the relatively low price of crude oil.

According to AAA, the current national average is $2.44 per gallon, compared to $3.433 per gallon last year.

In Portland, the current average is $2.81 a gallon, compared to $3.87 per gallon last year.

According to AAA, average U.S. gas prices are falling at the fastest rates since December.

The Pacific Northwest does remain the nation’s most expensive region for retail gasoline.
