What are gas prices doing at your neighborhood station? You should be seeing a slow, but steady decline. After prices jumped in September, October gas prices seem to be coming down.
"We're now looking at prices about 6 cents cheaper then where we were just a few weeks ago," said AAA's Don Redman.
Redman says barring anything unforeseen, yes, they should steadily decline at least through October and that's a good thing.
"Prices on the statewide average are currently about 2.26 and I know the listeners can already identify gas stations which are now below 2.20 a gallon in some spots," he said.
Still higher than a month ago about a nickel higher, but prices at the pump appear to continue to come down. And it's so much better than last year, when Redman said we were paying about 2.65 a gallon statewide.
"I think really 3 dollars a gallon is when people really start changing their habits so we are way off from that," he said.
Gas prices in New Orleans are currently at 2.24 a gallon.
