Experts say the state average for a gallon of regular gas is $2.78, which is lower than the current national average of $2.90 per gallon.

Despite a drop in prices for six consecutive weeks, AAA says prices could soon climb. Experts say the price of crude increased 2% last week and demand is increasing ahead of the summer travel season.
