The national gas price average is about a dollar less compared to this time last year. In West Lafayette regular gas is averaging around $2.28. Gas Prices in some parts of Indianapolis have already fallen under $2, and that is where experts say gas prices are headed.

This was good news to Purdue Student Louis Kissinger who says gas prices affect the amount of times he is able to visit home.
“I remember a couple of months ago they got up right at $3, it seemed like the whole state was right around $2.99 for some reason and driving back and forth from home was a lot more of a hassle than it is now,” said Kissinger.
The BP refinery outage in Whiting, Indiana that sent prices higher in the Midwest several weeks back has resumed production. AAA reports it’s the lowest national average for Labor Day weekend in 11 years and could fall below $2 per gallon by Christmas.
