WASHINGTON (AP) - Travelers on the road for the Fourth of July weekend are finding that gasoline prices have gone down a bit.
They've been declining for the past few weeks, and Triple-A says the national average for unleaded regular is now below $3.00 a gallon.
Analyst Doug MacIntyre, of the Energy Information Administration, looks for a price rise in August and then possibly a big drop after Labor Day. A lot could depend on whether there are any hurricane disruptions as there were with Hurricane Katrina two summers ago.
The national average for gas peaked in late May at nearly $3.23 a gallon.
