As Americans start hitting the road for summer vacation, gas prices are on the minds of many.
The Energy Department says drivers can expect to pay about $3.53 a gallon this summer. That's down 10 cents from last year.
AAA's Cynthia Harris cited several reasons for the dip in price.
"There is a large supply of gasoline and there are no refinery issues at this time," she told Capital Public Radio. "As a matter of fact, there is increased refinery production; steady crude oil prices; and also there's a little bit less demand by consumers."
Currently, AAA reports an average price of $3.63 a gallon. Illinois and Michigan are seeing a spike in prices, both with an average of over $4.15.
