In Fresno, drivers are paying an average of $4.01 per gallon. In fact, in the past month, the average price for a gallon of gasoline is down 14 cents from last month.

Clovis resident Kate Mentink hits the freeway often and lately has spent about $50.00 to $60.00 every time she fills up. She says while the change may not be much, every cent counts.

"I'm like making huge decisions at the gas," said Mentink. "I could eat at work instead of getting something on the way. So it's nice not to have to make life decisions at the gas station anymore." While prices have dropped here in the Valley, they are still higher than the national average.

As for what's ahead, experts say prices could go down a bit, but will settle around $4.00 a gallon in the near future.=
