Prices @ Pump Expected to Drop


If you're planning a road trip for Labor Day weekend, you're in luck.  UPI reports prices at the gas pump are expected to drop just in time for  the holiday. According to AAA, the current national average per gallon  of regular unleaded gas is $2.83 and most state averages are on a slow,  steady decline. AAA spokeswoman Jeanette Casselano says the price drop  is following a decline in consumer demand. 

"The national average is  expected to keep moving lower, especially with the switchover to lower  grade gasoline in September," Casselano said in a statement. Patrick  DeHaan from GasBuddy says this summer brought the highest prices for  drivers since 2014.
