Airline passengers are getting the squeeze lately but this summer they can expect a sliver of relief.

Airfares will be dropping a whole $2.01, according to new data released by the Airline Reporting Corp, a financial and data services company for the airline industry.

The smidge of savings mainly comes from lower fuel costs for airlines, down to $2.13 from $3.03, according to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, a 29 percent drop.

Fliers can expect to pay $453.87 for the average roundtrip domestic ticket, down less than a percent from a year ago.

That'll almost get you halfway towards an in-flight bag of nuts!
