Gas Prices Drop Slightly

ROCKFORD - Not much relief at the gas pump for drivers.

ROCKFORD - Not much relief at the gas pump for drivers.

The average price for regular, unleaded gasoline is $3.32 in the Forest city, just a penny less than last week, according to GasBuddy.com.

And prices aren't going to drop for quite awhile.

"Due to the slow demand that January and February typically see" says Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan, "it'd really take a monumental ice breaker to crack the grip... I foresee prices remaining relatively quiet."

To make matters worse, local drivers are paying nearly six cents more per gallon than a year ago.  Nationally, the drivers on average are paying $3.29.
