If you have weekend travel plans, you might be tempted to smile a little at the pump.

A promised decline in prices is underway across Kansas. They've been in a steady drop in Wichita for more than a week, and as of Friday morning seem to have settled at around $3.26 a gallon for regular unleaded.

That's below the national average of $3.45, which is the lowest since late January. And it's 21 cents below September 17, when we reported the price in Wichita was $3.47.

If you're heading toward northeast Kansas, prices are even lower. One tracking website notes Topeka has several stations at $3.09 a gallon.

Crude oil prices had dropped five percent in a one-week period. But that streak ended Thursday, with the benchmark price closing at $103.03 per barrel.
