Things are starting to look up for drivers in Charlotte. 

Gas prices have decreased for the third week in a row, with the average gallon of gas declining by 7.4 cents over the last week. The average price sits at $4.45 as of Tuesday, according to GasBuddy officials.

The price is still 91 cents higher than the previous eight-year high of $3.54, the highest since July 5, 2014.

Prices in Charlotte are 5.6 cents per gallon lower than last month. 

The cheapest gas in the city was $4.05 per gallon, and the most expensive was $4.70 a gallon as of July 4. 

It is uncertain whether these trends will continue with the past holiday demands.
