Gas Prices Going Down Slowly

Gas prices in South Dakota shot up just before the Memorial Day weekend.  Marilyn Buskohl of AAA South Dakota believes we will see prices begin to fall in the next couple of weeks.

The average price for a gallon of regular gas in South Dakota today (Wednesday) is $3.84.  Buskohl says gas prices in the state are still quite a bit above the national average.

Buskohl says the Midwest is not the only area experiencing high gas prices.
