NORFOLK-Gas prices in Hampton Roads and across Virginia should continue going down, according to AAA Tidewater.

Virginia’s average price for regular unleaded gasoline is $3.17 per gallon today.

The average price for regular unleaded gasoline is $3.17 a gallon, down seven cents from last week. It's 33 cents lower than this time last year,

AAA says you should expect prices to keep falling through the end of the year because there's plenty of gas and no real increase in demand.

Barring a hurricane or other unexpected disruption to production and distribution, the national average is likely to fall to between $3.10 and $3.20 per gallon by Christmas, which would be the lowest price since February 2011, officials said.
