Gasoline prices have began to fall again, roughly following the price of oil as usual. The AAA Fuel Gauge showed the average price for a gallon of regular nationwide was $3.381 yesterday, compared to $3.382 the day before and $3.542 a month ago.
Few states have an average price for a gallon of regular of over $3.50. These include some of the most populous states — California, New York and Illinois. Overall, gas prices will continue to fall. Stockpiles are larger than expected. And factors that might have sent oil high, which most recently included a strike by Norway’s oil workers, have gone away.
