Gas prices have continued to retreat nationwide, ahead of the Independence Day holiday.
In Virginia, AAA Mid-Atlantic says the price of a gallon of regular gasoline now averages $3.22 statewide. That's 6 cents less than last week and more than 25 cents less than a year ago.
Gas prices range from about $3.11 in the Roanoke metro area to $3.24 in the Norfolk area. Prices averaged $3.13 in the Charlottesville area and were $3.22 in the Richmond area.
The auto club says that compares with an average price at the pump nationwide of $3.42 a gallon.
Officials with AAA say some analysts believe prices at the pump will fall another 5 to 20 cents before the July Fourth holiday when 35.5 million Americans are expected to hit the road.
