Gas Prices Finally Down 

AAA says the average price paid for regular gasoline has dipped below $4 a gallon – just barely – in Maine.

AAA says gas prices dropped about a penny over the weekend from $4.017 to $3.997, which is about 10 cents cheaper than a month ago.

That mirrors a national trend. The Lundberg Survey of 7,000 gas stations nationwide indicates prices are at their lowest level since May 16.

Nationally, the average price of regular gasoline at self-serve stations dipped to $3.996 a gallon Friday. Still, the survey showed the average U.S. price for gas is $1.11 higher than it was a year ago.
