If you spent time on the road over Labor Day Weekend, you paid close to $3 for a gallon of gas. But experts say we're likely to pay a little less at the pump once we reach autumn.

The average price of gas the holiday weekend was around $2.84/gallon, 43 cents more than this time last year, reports Courier Post.

The forecast, according to AAA and an app called GasBuddy, predicts prices could dip anywhere from 10 to 25 cents a gallon by Thanksgiving.

This in spite of a planned gas tax increase recommended by the current U.S. Treasury Department.
