US Gas Prices Fall 9 Cents to $3.58

Posted: Updated:
 A national survey finds the average U.S. price of regular-grade gasoline has plummeted 9 cents a gallon over the past two weeks to $3.58. That's the largest drop this year.

Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg said the decrease came despite a rise in crude-oil prices.  Lundberg says U.S. refiners, enjoying plentiful supplies, aggressively cut wholesale prices to chase sales.

It's even cheaper for Iowans to fill up the gas tank.  The average price across the state for a gallon of regular is $3.43.
