March madness is here, however things are anything but mad at the gas pumps so far this spring.
Prices continue to ease for motorists as crude oil prices stabilize and refineries come back online following winter maintenance. The national average price of regular grade gasoline dropped a penny last week to $3.69 Friday. This price is eight cents more than one month ago, but it is 19 cents less expensive than the average price one year ago.
Monday, March 18 was the first day since January 11 that the average price at the pump has registered a month-over-month decline. The national average has fallen 19 of 23 days since the peak 2013 price to date of $3.79 on Feb. 27.
