Delaware gas prices continue to drop

Prices at the pumps in Delaware have fallen by a nickel during the past week, according to AAA Mid-Atlantic.

A gallon of unleaded regular sells for a statewide average of $3.37.  The price has dropped more than 40-cents since reaching its peak in April, accompanied by a 20-percent decline in crude oil prices.  AAA says gas prices may drop to $3.00-a-gallon in some parts of the country, barring any unforeseen problems with the world or national economies.  The national average for gas is $3.51, while fuel sells for about $3.49 in southeastern Pennsylvania and $3.33 in southern New Jersey.
