AUGUSTA, Maine — A price monitoring website says the average retail gasoline price in Maine has fallen 4.6 cents per gallon in the past week to $3.68.

MaineGasPrices.com says prices Sunday were 98.4 cents per gallon higher than they were on the same day one year ago, and one-tenth of a cent per gallon lower than a month ago.

The national average has fallen 4.2 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.61 per gallon.

Price analyst Patrick DeHaan says wholesale prices continue to be somewhat volatile, but he expects October to see markets slowly quiet down, with retail gasoline prices falling to $3.35-$3.55 on average by Thanksgiving,.
