INDIANAPOLIS (WISH/WLFI) - For the first time in more than six months, gas prices have dropped below $3 a gallon.
Analysts at Gasbuddy.com say the last time that happened was the week of Dec.17.
Although prices seem to be dropping even lower in other parts of the state, Greater Lafayette's prices are dipping down to $3.14 in some places.
Meanwhile, in Crawfordsville, gasbuddy.com says several gas stations, such as the Shell on Darlington Avenue and Binford Street or the Admiral on East Market Street and Dubois Avenue, are selling gas for as low as $2.89 and $2.90.
The average price in Indianapolis is $3.20 per gallon. Gasbuddy.com is showing that you can find stations all around the city under the $3 mark – one for $2.99 on Shadeland just south of Interstate 70.
The drop is just in time for July 4 drivers.
A week ago, the average price in Indianapolis was $3.47; a month ago it was $3.98.
The drop is unusual because of the four-day holiday weekend that's coming up and because it is in the heart of the summer vacation driving season.
The rest of the country varies in terms of prices, so if you're driving, check before you hit the road.
