ROCKFORD - Filling up your gas tank is getting a little easier on your wallet.
GasBuddy.com reports prices have fallen in the Forest City by an average of eight cents per gallon, settling at $3.59/g. It compares favorably to the rest of the nation, which is spending $3.65/g.
Analysts expect prices to continue dropping.
"Gas prices over the next few weeks could fall more than 10c/gal" says Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.
Still, even with the drop, DeHaan says gas prices for the 4th of July weekend were the highest since 2008.
