Some good news for Rockford drivers can be found at the gas pump.
According to GasBuddy.com, gas prices have fallen on average 5.4 cents in the past week, leveling off at $3.65/gal. Still, it's higher than the national average, which is $3.59/gal.
Even so, today's average is 31 cents lower than at this time last year and as one analyst says, football fans enjoyed the savings. "There's a lot of extra hot dogs and beer that can be consumed instead of being redirected into the tanks of American motorists" says Senior Petroleum Analyst, Patrick DeHaan.
DeHaan warns the situation in Syria could affect prices in a negative way.
