(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Good news at the pumps. Triple-A (AAA) says gas prices are finally trickling down.

A spokeswoman for Triple-A says factors like low inventory, blackouts, refinery problems, and post-war sabotage had a snowball effect on gas prices before Labor Day.

Now after the holiday, the demand is low and so are the barrel prices.

But although prices are coming down, they're still higher than this time a month ago.

The average price of regular unleaded is now at a dollar eighty per gallon.

That's a three cent decrease from the highest recorded price on September fourth.

But to get the cheapest gas in the state, motorists will have to go to Provo.

That's where it's the lowest, at a dollar seventy-seven per gallon.
