Gas Prices Drop Ahead of Holiday Travel

Just ahead of a popular holiday travel week, good news at the gas pump.  In Long Island, New York, gas is expensive, but at least there is some – and without lines – weeks after Superstorm Sandy forced gas rationing.  And everywhere else around the country, the price at the pump is dropping.

FOX News Radio’s Lisa Lacerra reports:

Gas prices continue to fall.

(Lundberg) “The average is down another $.07 in the past two weeks, to $3.47.  And this is a total drop, over six weeks, of more than $.036.”

Analyst Trilby Lundberg, who says Superstorm Sandy is a contributing factor because of damage to infrastructure.

(Lundberg) “There essentially was very little gasoline market period in a good portion of the Northeast.”

The highest price: on Long Island, New York, at $4.18.  The lowest: in Memphis, Tennessee, at $3.04.
