The price at the pump hits a five-month low

Gas prices in Delaware for this Independence day weekend are down two cents from last week.

According to AAA-Mid Atlantic, the price at the pump for regular unleaded gas in Delaware is at $3.43 down from last week's $3.45.

It's still three cents higher than at this time last year.

AAA-Mid Atlantic's Jana Tidwell says gas prices might not drop much further this month.

She cites increased crude oil prices, increased summertime demand and hurricane season as reasons for possible higher pump prices for motorists.
