Gas prices on decline in W.Va.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- The price of gas continues to go down in West Virginia, declining 11 cents per gallon since last week.

AAA's weekly Fuel Gauge says the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is now $3.35 in West Virginia. That's about six cents more than a year ago.

The auto club says gas prices have declined because of the switch to winter-blend fuel, increasing inventories, lower demand and cheaper crude oil prices.

Nationally, gas prices average about $3.24 this week.

In West Virginia, prices at the pump range from a high of nearly $3.51 in Martinsburg to a low of $3.20 in Parkersburg.
