Utica, NY (WIBX) - It's getting a little cheaper to fill up your gas tank.

AAA's Ed Welsh says the average price in the Utica-Rome market is $3.75 a gallon, down 2 cents from last week.

Last year at this time we were paying an average of $3.66 a gallon.

Welsh says with the price of crude oil on the rise, we won't see any big decline in gas prices over the next few months.

He also says the situation in Algeria shouldn't have any short term effect on gas prices since most of Algeria's oil goes to China.
