Gas prices drop

NORTH COAST- Good news at the pump. Gas prices have dropped to their lowest levels in four years, averaging out to be $3.45 in Eureka.

Prices have come down an average of $.18 per gallon over the past two weeks. The average price of regular gas is now $3.08 a gallon around the country.

The steep decline is due to the drop in price of crude oil. The prices are expected to drop a few cents lower before leveling off.
