Drivers can expect to pay high prices at the pump this holiday weekend, but the good news is some relief is on the way. 

We saw some of the highest gas prices this summer since 2014, that’s according to Triple A. 
Right now Americans are paying a national average of 2.84 a gallon, but that could drop about 14 cents because once fall hits stations switch to a cheaper winter blend of gasoline.

 
We asked consumers what they thought about gas prices finally dropping.


“I think it’s great cause my business I’m on the road a lot and drive a lot of miles,” said Minot resident Jerry Clark. 


“I don’t think they’re that bad right now I mean they’ve been a lot worse,” said Minot resident Kelly Smith. 

KX news: What do you think would be a reasonable gas price? 

“2.50 or so,” said Minot resident Jacob Niess. 

North Dakotans are currently paying a statewide average of 2.80 per gallon.
