Gas prices continue to fall

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Gasoline prices continue to ease.

Triple-A says prices fell by a nickel this week, with the average price for a gallon of regular at $3.82 nationwide.

The auto club says prices are 8 cents lower than a month ago and 5 cents lower than this time last year when the average price topped out at $3.99 per gallon.

Crude oil remained relatively stable last week, trading within its recent comfort zone of $101 to $105 per barrel. That's helped move gas prices lower.
