Gas prices have dropped 4.4 cents per gallon in the Rockford area this week, giving only slight relief to drivers.
The average price of gas in Rockford was $3.82 per gallon on Sunday, according to GasBuddy.com's survey of 139 gas outlets. That prices is 1.2 cents lower than one year ago and 16.6 cents higher than one month ago.
Nationally, prices have also fallen, but just 2.8 cents per gallon to $3.70. That prices is 0.7 cents lower than one year ago and 21.6 cents higher than one month ago.
"Gasoline prices have continued to remain relatively stable in the last week, falling a few cents per gallon, providing well needed relief to motorists," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "Perhaps more noteworthy, however, is the fact that current average gasoline prices have now fallen under their year ago levels. And perhaps the best news is that the national average will likely continue to decline in most areas east of the Rockies in the week ahead as wholesale gasoline prices have given up ground."
