(CNN) — Good news for your summer travel plans. Experts are forecasting a huge drop in gas prices.
According to AAA, the national average for regular gas currently stands at $2.72 a gallon. That’s 17 cents lower than this year’s high in early May.
Gas prices have been falling steadily for several weeks now.
One analyst says U.S. drivers could be paying less than $2.50 for a gallon in the next few months. He predicts the national average could drop even more, to around $2.25.
If that happens, the analyst says nearly half the nation’s gas stations would probably be selling gas for less than $2 a gallon.
