Gas prices in the Hudson Valley, and across the country are set to plunge according to recent trends.

It appears that gas prices are set to drop by an average of 16 cents per gallon nationally. The price of gasoline has been dropping steadily since the beginning of May, and could potentially drop even further moving into summer.

It's interesting to see prices drop at this time of year, usually the price is higher as more people are traveling. Last year at this time, the price ranged from $2.82 and $2.90 a gallon. That price stayed steady through the summer and early Fall, before dropping in November.

Over the next week, we could see the national average price of gas drop to $2.59 a gallon. Currently, the Hudson Valley is paying an average of approximately $2.74 a gallon.
