ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Average gas prices around the Rockford area have fallen again slightly by three cents to $3.35 per gallon this week.

According to GasBuddy, this average is 12 cents per gallon lower than a month ago and 20 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

The national average has fallen less than a cent this week to $3.36 per gallon. That's 13 cents per gallon lower than a month ago and 31 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

"Oil and gasoline futures may be more volatile this week as the Fed shutdown is over, and the Energy Information Administration releases data about supply and demand for the last two weeks," said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy.com senior petroleum analyst, in a press release. "Should that data be surprising, it may have an impact on the direction of gasoline prices in the days ahead."
