GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Remember when experts were predicting gas prices would reach $5.00 a gallon by this summer. Well, summer officially starts Wednesday, and gas prices are heading in the opposite direction.
We just checked with AAA. A gallon of gas in Mississippi currently costs $3.13/gallon. That's an eight cent drop in just one week. And it's 31 cents cheaper than a gallon of gas cost last month.
A year ago at this time, Mississippians paid $3.45 for a gallon of gas.
