Gas prices are finally falling back to Earth.

Just one month ago, the price of a gallon of regular gas averaged an all-time high of $4.33 in the U.S. Prices had risen a staggering 22% between February 21 and March 14 — the largest jump ever recorded in a three-week span.

Now, the market is swinging the other way. On Monday a gallon of gas cost $4.11 on average across the entire country, and experts expect prices to keep on dropping in the days ahead.
