Just two weeks before the unofficial start of the summer, gas prices are falling.

The price of regular unleaded along New Jersey toll roads dropped six cents Friday morning.

Now, instead of $3.74 a gallon, drivers will only have to pay $3.68.

Typically, the price of gas goes up as summer approaches, but not this year.

The average price has been steadily declining for more than a month, dropping 20 cents.

The highest prices in our area are in Connecticut, where the average is $4.04 a gallon. In New York the average is $4.02.

Motorists are taking note.

"I live on Staten Island, but I try to fill up in Jersey every chance I get," driver Tony Ablavskiy said.
