Gas Prices: Over the Peak?

-
(NBC News)  Much of America watched helplessly as gas prices climbed over the past few months, forcing drivers to spend about $11.7 billion more filling up this April than they did at the same last year. 

Now analysts say gas prices are falling after a hitting a peak last week of about $3.70 a gallon for regular unleaded.

Prices have already dropped about three cents a gallon and will continue to fall according to Michael Green of AAA. 

"Most people should be paying less for Memorial Day than in recent years," Green says.

Analysts say there's a small chance the national average could even dip below $3.25 a gallon this summer.  

Green says increased production is driving the drop in prices now that refineries have completed their yearly spring maintenance and reformulated their gas for summer.
