Gas Prices Drop

Tampa, Fla.-(970 WFLA)-Gasoline prices have dropped according to AAA in Tampa.  The auto club is giving credit to stable oil prices.

Triple A has the statewide average at $3.57 for a gallon of unleaded regular.  It cost you an average of $3.59 for a gallon a week ago. 

The national average for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline has dropped from $3.63 a week ago to $3.61 this week.

Analysts say oil prices have remained relatively stable for the past weeks, helping to keep prices at the pump from spiking.  Oil has been trading between $104.00 and $108.00 a barrel.

Prices could rise if trouble erupts in the Mideast and North Africa.  A hurricane or storm in the Gulf of Mexico could also cause a rise in gas prices.
