Gas prices have dropped steadily during the last 30 days and are more than $1 cheaper than a year ago.

Even with the Easter and Passover holidays at hand, the national average price for regular unleaded gasoline continues to drop.

AAA reports gasoline prices have fallen for 24 of the past 30 days, after reaching a peak-to-date price for 2015 of $2.46 per gallon on March 7.

AAA calculated this week the national average price at the pump is $2.39 per gallon, which represents a savings of three cents versus one week ago and seven cents versus one month ago.
