Gas prices have fallen below $4 a gallon for the first time since February.

As the summer driving season is set to begin, gas prices have fallen below $4 for the first time since February.

Prices at the pump plummeted to an average of $3.98 in New York City, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report.

Gas surpassed the $4 mark in late February, where it had remained for the past three months.

Historically, gas prices rise post Memorial Day as drivers take to the road for vacations and weekend getaways.

Over the past month, gas has fallen 20 cents. A year ago, drivers were paying $4.15 per gallon to fill up.

Nationally, the average cost for a gallon of gas is $3.63, five cents lower than last week.
