After a brief pause that led the national average to rise slightly, prices have resumed their decline across all of the nation. In the last week, not a single state saw its average rise, a marked difference versus what occurred during the last week of August. The national average stood at $3.38/gal this morning, down 5.4c/gal from last week's $3.436/gallon.
