GENESEE COUNTY (WJRT) -

Eyes are on Gas prices - with the big July 4th holiday weekend quickly approaching.Many mid-Michigan residents will be hitting the road for summer vacation. Could they go even lower?Although gas prices have come down from over $4.00 a gallon, they still have a ways to go toget back to where they were at this time last year, about seventy cents lower!                Driver reaction is mixed on whether the current prices will affect their holiday travel.

Roderick Amodia of Flint says, "Yeah, gas prices does affect our traveling. We usually travel from maybe here to Florida, but this time it's going to be a short distance."

And Joseph Adamowicx from Capac adds.."We'll be staying there and we're both pitching in on gas because the gas is still so expensive. And we'll be spending the whole weekend there at Cedar Point."

Consider yourself fortunate if you managed to fill up at say $3.32 a gallons.                          Some stations Tuesday afternoon have already raised their prices to $3.59 a galloon.
