Gas prices just keep on dropping. That’s the word from AAA-Arizona, which reports fuel prices this week decreased four cents in the state and nation. And to top it off, AAA’s Michelle Donati says, we’re also paying 70-cents less  than we did at this time a year ago. As for the current trend, abundant fuel

supplies and lower crude oil costs is making gas cheaper these days.

Donati says, barring anything that may reverse this positive trend, gas prices are expected to remain low for the rest of the summer. As of Thursday, Arizona’s four cent reduction brought average gas prices to $2.16 a gallon. In the U.S, that four cent drop made fuel average $2.14 a gallon.
