Montana drivers are seeing something they haven't encountered for almost a year,  regular unleaded gas prices under $3 a gallon.

Senior Petroleum analyst for Gasbuddy dot com, Greg Laskoski, says the reason is that retailers and wholesalers in the gas industry are getting more of their product from cheaper Canadian crude oil.

Laskoski says the current price will probably stay with us for the next few weeks. He says gas stations throughout the Rocky Mountain states are all enjoying prices for regular unleaded at just under $3 a gallon.
