BATON ROUGE - As world leaders attempt to combat the price of fuel, the cost of gas around the Capital City area is beginning to drop. One gas station in Central has seen a drop of more than 50 cents in the past five weeks.

"It's making a difference big time, because you don't have to worry about going somewhere or stopping and filling up," said Jami Engels, who fills up with premium gasoline.

Others around town are still disappointed in the high prices despite any drop.

"Disgusted, I don't like the prices, I think the oil companies, all of them should be arrested from the top down, it's a fraud on the country, we got more oil and gas laying around here," said one man fueling at the Mobil gas station in Central.

The average price for unleaded in Baton Rouge is around $3.47 a gallon, while the national average tops out near $3.60 for a gallon of unleaded.
