DALLAS--Price of gas got ya' down?

Well, cheer up! Things might get a little better soon.
AAA says Texas drivers are paying $3.12 a gallon on average.
That's down a dime in the last month.

And AAA thinks it might be down to around $3 by the end of the year.

You can thank a boom in oil production in the U.S.

So gassing up your car might cost a little less.
But getting your brain's engine going might cost a little more.

Yep, your morning cup might get more expensive, whether you get it at a restaurant or make it yourself.
Most of it comes from Brazil and they're going through a severe drought. That's taking a toll on the coffee crop.

The Wall Street Journal says Brazilian coffee bean prices are at their highest level in 2-and-a-half years.

So wake up and smell the gas fumes.
Your morning fix is gonna cost you more, but at least it won't cost as much to idle in the drive-thru.
