BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — There’s some good news for those traveling this Fourth of July holiday - the pain at the pump is getting a little easier to bear.
According to GasBuddy.com, the average price for a gallon of gas in the state is around $3.33 a gallon, which is down three cents from last week.
Although it's about 15 cents higher than this time last year, analysts said we can expect the price to keep dropping, at least for the time being.
