Gas prices ease pain on motorists' wallets

The price pullback at the pump continues with area motorists getting a break when fueling up.

According to AAA MidAtlantic, the cost of a gallon of unleaded regular fell three cents last week to a statewide average of $3.29.

Spokeswoman Jana Tidwell says the national average is expected to fall to the lowest level since February 2011.

She says barring a hurricane or other disruption to production and distribution prices should fall to between $3.10 and $3.20 a gallon by Christmas.
