Gas prices fell almost nine cents over the past three weeks, according to a nationwide survey.
The Lundberg Survey found the average price for a gallon of regular gas nationwide is now $3.61. That's also the average here in North Carolina where gas prices have dropped six cents over the past week.
The current price is still higher than the average of $2.65 a gallon from this time last year.
The recent price decline is attributed to a steep drop in crude oil prices, which fell almost two percent in the past week.
