CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Now to some good news for motorists heading into the fall.

According to the Triple-A, significant savings are on the way at the gas pump after Labor Day.

Drivers in every market across the country could potentially enjoy savings of more than 25 cents per gallon, compared to summer prices.

Among the reasons for the relief include less expensive crude oil prices, as well as lower demand and the change to winter-blend gasoline.

However, hurricane season can often disrupt decreases at the pump.

Triple-A says the mere threat of a hurricane making landfall can lead to spikes in crude and gas prices.
