Your pain at the pump looks like it will be easing a bit; gas prices won't be as high as expected this summer.

In fact it may cost less, just in time for the long Memorial Day holiday weekend.

These projections come as the price of oil goes down. A barrel of oil has dropped nearly $8.00 in the last couple weeks.

We should see a price drop from around $3.95 to $3.79.

Industry experts say this will save American drivers some $10 billion in gas money this summer.
