AUGUSTA — Maine residents are getting some relief at the gas pump.

Price-monitoring website reports Monday that the average retail cost of a gallon of gas in the state has fallen more than two cents in the past week and now averages $3.82.

The price in Maine, however, remains 12 cents per gallon higher than the national average.

Gas prices in Maine are now two cents lower than the same time last year but a dime higher than they were a month ago.

The prices are based on a survey of more than 1,200 Maine gas stations.
