Gas Prices Fall for 10th Week in a Row
Weekly Energy Information Administration survey shows prices may soon fall below $3.50 per gallon.
According to AAA's daily survey, the national average price for a gallon of regular gas today fell below $3.50 -- the first day since Jan. 30 to see prices fall so low.
Not everyone is being spared, however: While the lower Atlantic region is paying a mere $3.301 per gallon, California -- considered its own "region" in the weekly survey -- still shows average prices above $4.
Analysts point to the struggling world economy, specifically the eurozone crisis, for driving down the price of oil. For those planning a road trip this summer, it's a welcome side-effect of a bad situation.

It isn't good news. The price of oil-per-barrel is $83.00, as of last week. We should be paying no more than $2.00/gal, but we're still getting raped by oil companies, because we're still paying over $3.00/gal.
Leave the propaganda on the newsroom floor. Start writing articles asking real questions like why we're still paying so freaking much for fuel.
for a country that produces its own oil we seem to be getting the tire iron shoved up the a@#. by the oil companies and the share holders. everything goes up exept wages. so there billions they make hurts the everyday hard working american . but what the hell do they car there RICH beyond stupid
$82 per barrel and the most oil they have had on hand since the early 90's why arent we only paying 78 cents a gallon like we did back then? Demand is certainly not up, but greed is!
Big deal that gas has dropped a few cents. We're still paying way too much.
