It appears the soaring gas prices are cooling off. Marie Dodds, at the Triple-A, says the average price for gas in Oregon is up a nickel to $3.64. Diesel is also up about a nickel to $4.08 a gallon. The price of crude oil dropped several dollars a barrel Tuesday, because of the crisis in Japan and concerns about the economic recovery. The average price in Bend for a gallon of gas now is $3.61.
