Gas prices are dropping

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Tuesday's national average price for regular unleaded gasoline is $3.54 per gallon. This is seven cents less than a week ago and 15 cents less than this date last year.

According to AAA, motorists in all but four states are paying less at the pump than one week ago. These declines have been most dramatic in the Midwest where retail prices have tumbled by a dime or more in six states: Mo. (-10 cents); Ill. (-11 cents); Ky. (-11 cents), Ohio (-14 cents), Mich. (-16 cents) and Ind. (-18 cents).

These are among the same states where even more dramatic month-over-month declines have pulled the national average lower.

Less than half of the states (22) currently enjoy a monthly savings at the pump, but three states (Ohio, Ind. and Mich.) have posted price reductions of 20 cents or more.

After a day with no clear direction, West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil prices settled Monday at $106.11, up 14 cents per barrel at the close of formal trading on the NYMEX.
