Cheaper gas for 4th of July travelers


People heading out of town for the 4th of July will find a welcome surprise at the pump...lower prices!

At a gas station off University Drive in Huntsville, it was $3.11 for a gallon of regular gas. The average price per gallon has been dropping all week. Travelers said it couldn't come at a better time.

WAFF 48 News caught up with Matt Howell while he was pumping gas. His SUV was loaded up and he and his family were headed down to the beach. He said, "I think it definitely makes it more attractive, rather than fly or any other means of transportation. I mean it definitely allows use to just get out for the weekend and head down to the beach."

The average price for a gallon of regular gas in Alabama is $3.21. That's about 30 cents cheaper than the national average of $3.50.
