It's always a good thing when you can have extra money in your pocket, and you'll find that change in your pocket this week as gas prices continue to fall in the Bismarck-Mandan area. Locally, gas prices dropped about 20 cents across the state.

South Carolina has the cheapest with $3.11 a gallon of regular. The most expensive in the US according to Gas Buddy.com is Hawaii at $4.26 a gallon. The cheapest for the Bismarck area is $3.44, with an average $3.49 per gallon.
