JACKSON, Miss.--While gas prices in the Magnolia State aren't anywhere near cheap, the average price continues to fall cent by cent, bringing the state's average to $3.53. Prices fell by about three cents over the weekend.
The national average for a gallon of regular was $3.70 Monday morning.
Oil analyst Trilby Lundburg told News Mississippi most of the country will see prices fall, even if not sharply, and that's because some refineries are coming back online.
"The refineries that have been down for repair are coming back up," she said, "in plenty of time to satisfy spring and summer gasoline demand."
That means if you haven't already left for spring break, the pump is going to be a little kinder.
Lundburg said prices fall another ten cents.
"Crude oil gets to decide. It's the grandfather. It has 70 percent of the weight of retail price.
