ALTOONA, BLAIR COUNTY - It's a small improvement. Gas prices in Altoona dropped six cents from Wednesday. Thursday's prices were around $3.89 a gallon, but travelers said it's not enough of a decrease.
"Ten cents doesn't really do much. Everyone at work talked about how excited they were that gas prices dropped ten cents, but it really doesn't do much of anything," Danielle Winkleman of Altoona said.
"It's great, but I don't think it will go down far enough to really make a difference," Jim Heitkamp of San Antonio, Texas said.
"It doesn't help a lot," Bruce Baker of Johnstown said. "Every little bit counts, but it doesn't impress you too much."
Although gas prices dropped people were still thinking about cutting back on summer traveling plans.
"My boyfriend lives around Philadelphia, and I take the train instead of driving because it's a lot cheaper to go by train than drive," Winkleman said.
"I just sold my pick-up truck," Heitkamp said. "Everyone in Texas drives a pick-up truck, and I'm looking for a smaller more fuel efficient automobile."
Heitkamp picked up his grandson in Altoona to spend the summer back in Texas. He said the trip up here costs a pretty penny, and he'll be looking for another way to send his grandson back home at the end of the summer.
"I think when the summer is over he will definitely be flying back," Heitkamp said.
Some gas stations like Robert's Service Station on 7th Avenue in Altoona were even cheaper at $3.87 a gallon. Unfortunately travelers expect the price drop won't last and will soon return to the near four dollar mark.
