Gas prices stayed unchanged and are expected to stay that way leading up to Memorial Day according to new reports released by AAA.

AAA officials say that oil prices stayed stable as well, dropping about two cents compared to the previous week.

"People who plan to enjoy Memorial Day weekend will likely see stable prices at the pump and shouldn't expect prices to spike, barring any unforeseen events that endanger fuel supplies," said AAA spokeswoman Jessica Brady. "Although gas prices are nearing year-ago levels, they are not expected to deter holiday travelers from enjoying the three-day weekend."
