BAY ST. LOUIS, MS (WLOX) - If you need to fill up your gas tank, you'll be glad to read this.  Gas prices are dropping.  And at more and more stations across the coast, a gallon of regular gas now costs less than $3.00.

In Bay St. Louis this morning, both gas stations at the corner of Highway 90 and Main Street were charging $2.98 a gallon for unleaded gas.  And a check of the "low gas prices" link on our WLOX News app in Gulfport now below the $3.00 mark.

According to, gas on the coast averages $3.08 a gallon.  That's a nickel cheaper than last week.  And 13 cents less than what gas cost just a month ago.
