Average retail gasoline prices in the Sacramento area fell another 4 cents over the past week, according to today’s weekly report by national gas price tracker

GasBuddy, which surveys 720 gasoline outlets in the area, said the average price is $3.65 a gallon. That’s 41.6 cents lower than one year ago and 20.5 cents below a month ago.

Nationally, the average price fell just 0.4 cents over the past week to $3.57 a gallon – down 9.5 cents from last month and 16.6 cents below one year ago.

“As driving season closes out, the national average has been remarkably quiet, so far, but that may change as gasoline inventories declined … last week,” said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy.
