After enjoying the lowest gas prices for a Fourth of July weekend in a decade, Americans making the drive home – or continuing on summer road trips – can expect to see even cheaper fuel prices at the pump.

The price of a gallon of regular gasoline again dropped locally, statewide and nationally in the past week.

In Palm Beach County, the average cost for a gallon of regular gasoline fell 3 cents to $2.37, according to AAA. The Sunshine State average dropped 4 cents to $2.22. The U.S. national average also declined by 4 cents — to $2.26.

Much to the benefit of motorists, fuel prices have dropped steadily in the past month. The national average price for a gallon of regular gasoline has fallen 9 cents since early June. In Florida, the average is down 6 cents.
