CA­MAR­ILLO, Calif. — The av­er­age U.S. price of reg­u­largrade gaso­line has dropped 12 cents a gal­lon (3.8 litres) over the past three weeks to $2.31.

In­dus­try an­a­lyst Trilby Lund­berg of the Lund­berg Sur­vey says Sun­day that fall­ing crude oil costs are the main rea­son for the de­crease at the pump. The av­er­age gas price has dropped 66 cents over the past three and a half months. The high­est av­er­age price in the na­tion is $3.46 a gal­lon in the San Fran­cisco Bay Area. The low­est av­er­age is $1.80 in Ba­ton Rouge, La.
