Gasoline prices in Western Pennsylvania continue to decline, dropping 3.8 cents a gallon this week, AAA East Central said on Tuesday.

The average price for regular gas was $3.577 a gallon, down from $3.615 a gallon last week.

Average prices around the region this week ranged from a high of $3.629 in Altoona to a low of $3.486 in New Castle.

But prices are still well above the national average, which on Tuesday was $3.381, AAA said.
