AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine residents are getting some good news at the gas pump.

Price-monitoring website reports Monday that the average retail cost of a gallon of gasoline has fallen nearly eight cents in the past week to $3.94.

That’s still 13 cents above the national average, however.

Prices in Maine are still more than 33 cents per gallon higher than on the same day a year ago, and almost a dime higher than a month ago.

The national average has increased almost nine cents per gallon during the last month and stands 29 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. printed on July 21, 2017
