Two weeks into summer, the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gas in Delaware is down by three cents to $3.57.
But that price is up 11 cents over a year ago.
AAA MidAtlantic says you can expect gas prices to remain relatively high during the summer driving season as millions of Americans take long road trips to destinations nationwide.
AAA predicts the national average price of gas this summer likely will vary from $3.55 to $3.70 per gallon. Spokeswoman Jana Tidwell says gas prices often tick higher from Independence Day through August, as refineries work to keep pace with high demand.
