WASHINGTON — AAA says the summer driving season has ended with the lowest national average gas prices for the Labor Day holiday in more than a decade.

The auto club says the national average gas price was $2.34 per gallon for unleaded on Sunday. The Washington metro area average price matched the national average at $2.34 per gallon.

Gas prices have been lower throughout the summer season compared with last year. AAA says motorists are now paying more than $1 less per gallon for gas compared to the same time last year. Drivers are saving about 6 cents per gallon compared to one week ago and 28 cents compared to a month ago.

In the District of Columbia, prices were slightly higher Sunday at $2.59 per gallon.
