Maine Gas Prices Fall 3 Cents
04/29/2013 10:39 AM ET  

Price-monitoring Web site MaineGasPrices.com reports today that the in-state price is now just a penny above the national average.

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) _ The average retail cost of a gallon of gas in Maine has dropped nearly 3 cents in the past week to an average of $3.50.

Price-monitoring Web site MaineGasPrices.com reports Monday that the in-state price is now just a penny above the national average.

Prices in Maine are now almost 40 cents lower than on the same day last year and more than 21 cents per gallon lower than a month ago.

The Maine prices are based on a survey of more than 1,200 gas stations in the state.

A company analyst is warning consumers not to get too comfortable with the prices, as they are expected to start rising again soon.
