Gas prices are plummeting across the country, including in California, where the average fuel price was $5.397 Wednesday, according to the American Automobile Association.

That price represents a nearly 17 cent drop from a week and a 70-cent drop from a month ago, with prices expected to fall even further, according to the AAA.
