FAIRWAY, KS (KCTV/AP) -

Some good news for drivers Monday morning as prices at the pump begin to drop.

Gas prices around the country are going down and could go even lower.

When drivers fill up today, they will likely be paying seven cents less a gallon than one year ago.

AAA says average prices dropped slightly over the last week, continuing a trend over the last month.

The national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline fell a penny to $3.47 last week.

That price represents a 14-cent drop from a month ago and is 7 cents lower than a year ago.

AAA Expects prices to continue to fall as refineries gradually shift over to less costly winter blend of gasoline.

The drop is good news as people reach the end of the summer travel season and for those going on one last trip before Labor Day.
