The Price of Gasoline Heads Downward
Some good news for motorists this past week. The price of gas has dropped some around New England.
Here in Maine, the price at the pumps has fallen 3.8 cents a gallon to an average $2.60 a gallon, according to the survey by GasBuddy.com. In Presque Isle Monday morning, prices at most stations were $2.81 a gallon.
Elsewhere around New England, gas in New Hampshire dropped off 2 cents to $2.53 a gallon, on average. Pump prices in Vermont only fell slightly, less than a penny, to $2.56 a gallon.
Meanwhile, across the country, the national average was $2.57 a gallon, a decrease of 3.5 cents. That's 3.7 cents a gallon higher than a month ago and 29.4 cents more expensive than at this time last year.
