Gasoline Prices Fall 2.6 Cents, AAA Reports
NEW YORK (AP) _ Retail gasoline prices fell 2.6 cents a gallon for the week ending Tuesday, according to a survey by the American Automobile Association.
The average nationwide price for a gallon of self-serve regular unleaded was $1.359, still 28.4 cents higher than the price on Aug. 1, the day before Iraq invaded Kuwait, AAA said.
The survey found that pump prices were down across the United States except for the Mid-Atlantic region, where they rose slightly.
The survey is compiled through a spot check of gasoline prices at stations across the nation.
