CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — There's good news for motorists heading into fall.

According to AAA, significant savings are on the way at the gas pump after Labor Day. Drivers in every market across the country potentially could enjoy savings of more than $0.25 per gallon, compared to summer prices.

Among the reasons for the relief, less expensive crude oil prices, as well as lower demand, and the change to winter-blend gasoline.

However, hurricane season can often disrupt decreases at the pump.

AAA says the mere threat of a hurricane making landfall can lead to spikes in crude and gas prices.
