Alabama Gas Prices Drop

Gasoline prices continue to fall sharply across Alabama.

AAA's survey Friday shows the average price for regular unleaded is now $3.04 a gallon - matching the national average.

Regular unleaded dipped six cents overnight and is down almost 43 cents from last week.

AAA reports midgrade and premium fuels also fell to $3.18 and $3.27, respectively.

Birmingham has the highest metro average for regular at $3.12 a each.
