Gas prices are dropping since hitting an all-time high earlier in the summer. But prices aren’t falling as fast in the Four Corners as they are in others parts of the state.
The national average is now $3.78 per gallon for regular unleaded – that’s down from the record high of $5.01 in June.
New Mexico is averaging around $3.63 per gallon.
“Thank God they’re not at $5 a gallon,” said Travis Garcia, driver.
According to AAA, the demand for gas increased last week, but the price for crude oil is going down — leading to the drop in gas prices.
