Despite the gyrations on Wall Street last week, gas prices are down. The national average dropped a nickel and Oregon’s average is down two-cents to $3.73 a gallon. Triple A's Marie Dodds says crude oil remains below $90 a barrel. Diesel in Oregon is below $4.00 a gallon for the first time in weeks at $3.99 a gallon.
Dodds says prices should continue to slowly decline as long as there isn't an outside factor, such as a storm or political unrest in the Middle East that affects the oil supply.
