Gas prices dipping, Trend to continue

PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - New numbers from AAA show that in many states, gas prices have dipped to their lowest average of the year. 

In Florida, the average is $3.31 a gallon, more than twenty cents lower than a month ago.  

Last year, Florida's average was $3.68 at this time.

Nationally, prices are at $3.35 a gallon.  

Experts say the government shutdown dampened economic outlook and slid prices lower.  

With Tropical Depression Karen moving on, prices are expected to drop further this week.
