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

Price-monitoring website MaineGasPrices.com 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.
