ALBANY, GA (WALB) - There's good news at the gas pump. Prices are dropping and experts expect that trend to continue.

The average price of regular gas dropped 8-cents in Georgia over the past week. The slow economy and slumping demand led to a steep drop in crude oil prices last week.

Triple-A says that should result in even lower gas prices over the next few weeks.

"That would be great because the summertime is when people do a lot of traveling so we need the gas prices to be lowered for the summertime.  My family and I may do some traveling so we really need prices to be down for this big car. It needs to go down," said driver Halaveshia Mosley.

Monday afternoon we found regular gas for $2.30 a gallon in Albany. That's well below the national average of $2.53 and a little under the state average of $2.38 according to Triple A.
