Gas prices hit 4 dollars in some areas

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -Despite the promise of lower prices the cost of gas in the area doesn't seem to be budging.

AAA says the average price for regular gas in our area sits at $3.86.

Nationally, the price is a little higher at $3.94.

Both are down a penny from yesterday.

Still dropping a penny is hardly close to the drop that experts are predicting. They say prices will drop 50 cents by the summer.
