NEW YORK (AP) — Gasoline prices have dropped 5 percent since peaking last month.
The national average fell to $3.739 per gallon on Thursday, down nearly 20 cents since hitting a high of $3.936 on April 6. And compared with a year ago, regular unleaded is 21 cents cheaper.
Gasoline prices are falling as concerns about the economy pull down the price of oil.
Benchmark U.S. oil has fallen 6 percent since April.
