Gas Prices

A little bit of good news on gasoline as the price at the pump goes down for the first time since February.

A national survey finds that the average retail price of a gallon of gas fell about one-and-a half cents to about $2.93 cents a gallon.

The survey monitors prices of roughly seven thousand gas stations.

Gas prices have climbed more than 70 cents since February 24th, when self-serve regular was $2.24 cents a gallon.

Of the stations surveyed, the highest average price in the nation for regular unleaded was found in San Diego at $3.40 a gallon.

The lowest was in Wichita, Kansas, where drivers paid an average of $2.59 a gallon.
