Gas Prices Expected to Continue Declining

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Average gas prices around the Rockford area have fallen eight cents per gallon this week. The average now measures at $3.49 per gallon.

According to GasBuddy, Rockford area gas prices are 27 cents per gallon lower than a month ago and 43 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

Nationwide, drivers are paying an average of $3.58 per gallon. That average is one cent per gallon lower than a month ago and nine cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

"The rest of the summer will likely see prices flirting with where they stand today," said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy.com senior petroleum analyst, in a press release, "but more significant relief will arrive around mid-September, when prices nationally could be 10-25 cents per gallon lower than where they are today."
