Utica, NY (WIBX) - The slow drop in gas prices is continuing this week.  AAA's Ed Welsh says the average price in the Utica-Rome market is $3.87 a gallon.

That's down 3 cents a gallon from last week and 20 cents from a month ago.

Welsh says even with prices falling, we're still paying $1.05 more than we were at this time last year.

Welsh says he expects prices to continue their slow decline over the next few weeks.
