Maine average gas price drops 2 cents

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Maine — Gas prices in Maine are bucking the national trend and falling, but market analysts don’t expect it to continue.

Price-monitoring website MaineGasPrices.com said Monday the average retail cost of a gallon of gas in Maine has fallen nearly two cents in the past week to an average of $3.81.

The national average has jumped almost four cents in the same time span to an average of $3.75.

Prices in Maine are more than 23 cents higher than on the same day one year ago and 17 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.

A company analyst says peak gas prices are probably still a couple months away.
