The Lundberg Survey of fuel prices puts the average price for a gallon of regular at $3.91.

Locally, according to AAA, the average price for regular is $4.09 in New York, $3.81 in New Jersey, and $4.19 in Connecticut.

WCBS 880 reporter Paul Murnane says, however, that some Tri-State Area drivers have not noticed the drop in prices.

Analyst Trilby Lundberg said Sunday that the national average for a gallon of mid-grade is $4.05. For premium it’s $4.16 a gallon.

Lundberg says diesel prices fell about 8 cents a gallon over the past two weeks, to $4.14.

Jackson, Miss., had the nation’s lowest average price for gas at $3.60. Chicago had the highest at $4.38.

In California, the lowest average price was $4.03 in Fresno, while San Franciscans paid the highest price at $4.17.
