STATEWIDE – Gas prices continue to go down.
Today’s national average price for regular unleaded gas marks the lowest price for this date since 2004, according to AAA. The national average has dropped for 36 consecutive days for a total savings of 39 cents per gallon.
AAA says motorists are saving $1.06 a gallon compared to one year ago. The price decrease is attributed to the low price of crude oil and abundant petroleum supplies.
The current price for gas in Maine is $2.30 per gallon, five cents less than a week ago.
