Drivers around the nation are seeing prices at the pump far lower this Labor Day weekend than in years past.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the national average price of a gallon of regular gas on Friday was $2.58, two cents lower than last week and well below the average of $2.83 at this time last year.

Analysts say lower crude prices and an increase in gasoline supply mean gas prices lower than during the Memorial Day and Independence Day holidays — and for many 25 cents a gallon lower than they were just a year ago.
