CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — There's good news if you plan on traveling anywhere in your car this summer. Low gas prices are sticking around even as more and more people do their summer travel.

AAA says you can expect the the cheapest summer gas prices in four years. Here in Corpus Christi, the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded is $1.90. The same time last year, residents were paying $2.23 per gallon.

Prices are low partly because of the pandemic. Many people are playing it safe, not traveling as much, and taking fewer road trips.
