Area gas prices fall

According to AAA Gas Prices, the average price for a gallon of regular gas in the Toledo area has dropped below $2 for the first time since early April. Today’s average is $1.99, 11 cents a gallon less than the state average which is at $2.10 and 24 cents less than the national average which is $2.23, though gas prices continue to fall across most of the country.

After peaking at $2.38 on June 11, the national average for a gallon of gas has been dropping and is expected to continue to do so through the summer, despite record demand.
