BILLINGS - Gas prices in the Magic City are on the decline just in time for a busy week of holiday travel.
The price at the pump has dropped more than 30-cents in the past month in Billings.
According to AAA, the average price for a gallon of fuel in Billings is $3.40, nearly 15-cents cheaper than this same time last year.
Thousands of people will hit the road this week for Thanksgiving travel, but according to local drivers a lower price tag at the pump is always a welcomed sight.
"It makes me feel good, because it will help businesses out in Billings," said Billings resident, Allan Martinez. "There will be more money to spend on products instead of gas taxes."
The average expense of traveling by car this holiday weekend has fallen 10 percent from one year ago.
According to billingsgasprices.com, Monday's lowest fuel in Billings could be found at Sam's Club.
