HOUSTON (ICIS)--The national average retail price for a gallon regular unleaded gasoline is at $3.68/gal, which is 9 cents/gal cheaper than the 2013 high reached on 27 February, automobile organisation AAA said on Tuesday.

As the national average retail price declines, motorists have had some price relief.

Drivers in 38 states and Washington DC pay less today than they did last week, and those in 28 states pay less than one month ago, according to the AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report.

“While the recent price movement has varied by state, the year-over-year savings have been nearly universal,” AAA’s Michael Green said. “Motorists in every state, with the exception of North Dakota, pay less than the same day last year.”
