Gas prices down heading into holiday

Gas prices continue the retreat after hitting record highs earlier this month.
Just in time for the Memorial Day holiday, gas prices are down for the second straight week. But despite the drop, the price is still $1.05 higher than the price this time last year.

Delaware’s current average price for a gallon of gas is $3.77, that’s down from last week’s average of $3.88, but still much higher than this time last year when the average was $2.75.
