Gas prices are going down, and that's uplifting news to drivers here in the midstate. Over the past few weeks, prices have been slowly decreasing.
On Monday, AAA said the national average was at $3.34 for a gallon of regular. That's down nearly a dime from last month.
AAA cited changes here PA, too. They said the Commonwealth's average is at $3.52, down a nickel from last month.
Harrisburg area drivers saw a change as well. The average of $3.49 is down from $3.57 last month.
Many people say saving a few pennies can add up.
"Any little drop is an opportunity and a blessing and opportunity to save a little bit while we can," Daniel Keys from Steelton said.
Having this happen around the holidays always helps. But experts said we see a slight drop in gas prices this time every year.
This year, however, is different because of Superstorm Sandy. Experts said people were driving a lot less following the storm.
Now, there's plenty of gas and not as much demand. Furthermore, those at AAA said we could see prices drop a few extra cents between now and the start of 2013.
"I'll keep my eye on it and count my blessing every time I go to the gas pump," Harrisburg's Keith Perago said.
