CAMARILLO, Calif. — The average US price for regular gasoline has fallen 45 cents over the past three weeks to $4.10 a gallon.
Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg of the Lundberg Survey said Sunday the continued decline comes as crude oil costs also remain low.
“The $1-per-gallon decline was not enough to restore motorist demand, which is receding due to sustained high price levels,” Lundberg said in a statement.
The average pump price is down a dollar over the past nine weeks, but is 85 cents higher than it was a year ago.
Nationally, the highest average price for regular gas was in the San Francisco Bay Area at $5.36 per gallon. The lowest average was in Baton Rouge, Louisiana at $3.38 per gallon.
According to the survey, the average diesel price plunged 37 cents in three weeks to $5.17 a gallon.
