Drivers picked up a holiday gift, although just a small one.
The average U.S. price of regular-grade gasoline has dipped 4 cents per gallon to $2.61 over the past two weeks, according to the latest Lundberg survey.
Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg said Sunday that this could be the last relief that drivers see for a while as retailers around the country face higher costs.
The price at the pump is 18 cents higher than it was a year ago.
The highest average price in the nation for regular-grade gas is $3.62 per gallon in San Diego.
The lowest average is $2.14 in Houston.
The average price of diesel is $3.05, down a penny.
