    The average price of gasoline in Vermont fell 3.3 cents a gallon in the past week, averaging $3.66 a gallon on Sunday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 626 gas stations in Vermont.

    The national average fell 4 cents a gallon in the last week to $3.58 gallon.

    Compared to a year ago, prices in Vermont were 30.1 cents per gallon lower than a year ago and 15.4 cents per gallon lower than a month ago.

    The national average decreased 9.3 cents a gallon during the last month and were 32.8 cents a gallon lower than a year ago.

    "Americans are spending $108 million less on gasoline every day than they were a year ago," said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy.com senior petroleum analyst.

    DeHaan said 300 metropolitan areas saw cheaper gas prices in the first quarter than in 2012.

    He said more higher-priced markets this year include locations in Vermont, New York, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania.

    The most expensive market in the country was the Honolulu area, where gas was $4.157 a gallon, 3 cents more than a year ago, DeHaan said.
