Will Sacramento’s average gas price dip below $3 a gallon? Find out Tuesday

The prolonged decline has been tied to low crude oil prices, ample gas supplies and little disruption of refinery production. On Tuesday, AAA will release its monthly Gas Price Survey, breaking down average at-the-pump costs at jurisdictions throughout the state.
