This 2019 Commercial Ice Machine season is shaping up to be a record breaker! The majority of ice for consumption and refrigeration is purchased in the summer, nearly 80 percent between Memorial Day and Labor, according to the International Packaged Ice Association. According to AAA / IHS forecast more than 41 million travelers will hit the road this upcoming Memorial Day holiday period, an increase of approximately 6.8 percent over 2018. Another record breaking year! Last year, the highest pump prices for gasoline came just ahead of the Memorial Day holiday weekend. The national average price reached $2.98 a gallon, but it didn’t hit that level again all year and by December had dropped to $2.26 a gallon, the lowest average of the year. The average price of gasoline as of today May 14th, 2019 is $2.85 per gallon and expectations are for prices to fall into the holiday. Temperatures in the southeast are already kicking up into the 90s so you can expect record demand from thirsty tourists this year and commercial ice machine/s to be working overtime to keep up as the season kicks in!
