Gas Price are slowly dropping

Posted: Updated:
HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Most Americans who are traveling this holiday season seem to have mixed emotions about the slight dip in gas prices.

Prices in the Pine Belt are around 10 cents cheaper than last weeks prices and 25 cents cheaper than a year ago.

The national average for gas prices is between $3.30 and $3.60.

One motorist traveling through Hattiesburg said ""They can go down more. I was in California for two months and the gas prices there was way high, so I am fine with gas price right here."

Despite prices dropping here and around the country, motorists are still likely paying the third-highest prices ever for gas on the fourth of July.
