Gas prices continue to fall
The price of gasoline, which so recently appeared to be on track to hit $3 a gallon again, continued to fall last week as the price of crude oil on world markets dropped.
In Maryland, the average price of a gallon of regular fell by 6 cents since last Monday to settle in at $2.42, according to AAA Mid-Atlantic.
The Dunkirk area of northern Calvert County continued to offer the state's cheapest gas, with pump prices as low as $2.09 reported by MarylandGasPrices.com. Laurel and Beltsville also showed a cluster of low prices, with many stations in the $2.25-$2.29 range.
It's quite a change from this time last year, when the statewide average stood at $4.02.
