CAMBRIDGE, Md.- The cost of a gallon of regular gas at the Shell gas station off of Route 50 in Cambridge has dropped to $3.27.

Michael Price traveled to Cambridge from Washington, D.C. on Friday morning. He said the lower price is a plus, but he would appreciate it even more in the summer.

"I think obviously it would be nice to have them drop during the summertime when people are off and out doing some traveling," said Price.

Gas prices are falling and some say it could not happen at a better time. Money is being saved at the pump and some people say they will be enjoying the holidays even more.

"This is a great time for prices to drop because it's the holidays," said Suzanne Amari of East New Market. If we don't have to spend so much money on gas, we can spend it on our family."

Amari already has plans for the money she will be saving.

"You have a set amount of money to spend," she said. "If you don't have to put it in gas you can buy an extra bottle of wine."

Paul Chader of Cambridge agreed, saying the lower gas prices will be just enough for some to go the extra mile for the holidays.

"I think it's a great time because everyone is hitting the road to go to grandma's house or to see the grandchildren," Chader said. "And with the economy as bad as it has been, people don't have a lot of money to spend. So I think it's great that the prices are coming down."

As gas prices are projected to continue to fall, consumers are asking only one question: how low will they go?
