(KERO) — Some good news for drivers. At least a little bit. The price at the pump dropped slightly, for now.

The Lundberg Survey found the national average for a gallon of unleaded gas was $4.27.

That's down ten cents from two weeks ago but remains more than $1.30 higher than the same time last year.

The highest price in the country is in Los Angeles.

Despite that, Governor Gavin Newsom and state leaders took off on spring break without agreeing on how they will provide 39 million residents with some relief.
