Average price of gas in the US drops 4 cents per gallon

Gas prices are 24 cents lower than a year ago, with the lowest, so far, in a town in Louisiana.

The average U.S. price of regular-grade gasoline has dropped 4 cents per gallon (3.8 liters) over the past two weeks to $2.68.

Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg of the Lundberg Survey says Sunday that there may be further drops soon, as refinery maintenance season starts to slow and demand for gasoline declines this time of year.
