Maine gas prices drop 0.7 cents in last week

The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Maine — A gasoline price monitoring website says the average retail price in Maine has fallen 0.7 cents per gallon in the past week to $3.73.

MaineGasPrices.com says Sunday’s average price was $1.04 per gallon higher than it was the same day one year ago, and a penny higher than a month ago.

Maine’s average $3.73 also compares with the national average, which has fallen 0.1 cent per gallon in the last week to $3.66.

Petroleum analyst Patrick DeHaan said wholesale gasoline prices, which stations pay, began to drop last week. He said that means the national average price may begin moving lower.
