The average price of a gallon of regular gasoline fell 4 cents during the past three weeks in reaction to declining costs of crude oil, according to the Lundberg survey released Sunday.

Prices fell to an average of $3.67 a gallon for regular grade gasoline, according to the most recent survey, which was conducted on July 11.

"Crude prices have dropped in reaction to Libya having sizably hiked its oil production, and because Iraq's oil output has not being smashed by violence and turmoil there," said Trilby Lundberg, publisher of the survey.

The price of Brent crude in the U.K. has dropped by $8.35 a barrel in the past three weeks, while the price of West Texas Intermediate crude has fallen $6.43 during the same period, Lundberg said.

About a fourth of the crude oil price decline is now reflected at the pump, but drivers could see another 4 cent to 8 cent drop in gasoline prices in the near future, as retailers pass along more of their cost savings to consumers, Lundberg said.

San Francisco had the highest price within the latest survey at $4.12 a gallon, while the lowest price was in Tulsa, where regular grade cost $3.35 a gallon.

It is real simple people are not traveling due to lack of employment. Who has extra money, or money period. When gas is below $2 then I'll say wow.

Gas prices are relevant to the area as well. Most places under democrat rule are F'in outrageous.
The State and local governments need the tax revenue for the welfare rats that sit on their arses all day.

He has the keepers of the Golden Oil Goose on his side. He can't lose, the destruction of the middle class is his main agenda. George Soros must be happier than islamic radical with a new RPG.
He had a party for all muslim Americans at the white house last night, celebrating Ramadan.
Tricking the Infidels is his favorite pass time.

Just who is paying less at the pump. The oil racketeers continue to price their product about two dollars a gallon more than it should be. This has effectively crippled our economy. Bottom line, Mr. Pen and Phone seems unable or unwilling to do anything about it and the sheeple in this country continue to elect the same no-balls loons to Congress - so we get what we get!

You should start selling gas for $2/gallon and show those nasty racketeers who currently supply you with a product you seek, but won't produce yourself, who's boss.

Yeah! Yeah! If congress only had the BALLS to set price controls! Yeah! On ALL products! Yeah! Maybe then they could also set wage and compensation caps! That would be REAL ballsy! Oh! Then then then they can confiscate 95% or so of our compensation via taxes!
