— The cost of a gallon of gas in Maine is falling despite an increase in the price of a barrel of crude oil on the international market.

Price-monitoring website MaineGasPrices.com reports today that a gallon of gas has dropped nearly 3 cents in Maine in the past week to an average of $3.48.

That’s still a nickel above the national average and almost 58 cents more than a gallon in Maine at the same time last year.

Maine’s gas prices have not moved much in the past month.
