Price For A Gallon Of Gasoline

The price for a gallon of gas is getting a little lower.   Today in Tyler the price for a regular gallon of gas was $2.69. The national average for a gallon of gas is around $2.85.  AAA says the cost has dropped almost 9 cents in the past week but they say it needs to keep lowering.  

"It's always nice to save money but when you add up the total cost, 5 or 10 cents over a full tank it's about a $1.50 to $2.00, until it drops significantly to around 2 dollars it really doesn't matter to me," says Joshua Herrell.

"I want them to continuing to go down but I think we will see a jump this Labor Day, people will be traveling and the rates will go back up," says Joy King.

AAA says with summer driving season over... It should mean decreased demand, which will keep the prices down.
