The organization's survey of gas prices revealed that every metro area in Northern California saw a drop in its average price over the past month.

On Monday, June 25, the Arco gas station on the corner of Shoreline Boulevard and W. Middlefield Road posted the price of unleaded gas at $3.73.

Mapquest shows that the cheapest gas in the South Bay appears to be in Gilroy at $3.18 followed by Cupertino at $3.53, according to Patch's Commute page.

Gas prices will continue to drop this summer, according to economists, due to a drop in crude oil as a result of the increase in Saudi Arabian supply and higher United States refinery production.

Experts expect gas prices to hit $3.
