Gas prices have continued to retreat nationwide, just in time for Memorial Day weekend.
In Virginia, AAA Mid-Atlantic says the price of a gallon of regular gasoline now averages $3.53 a gallon statewide. That's 5 cents less than last week and a penny higher than a year ago.
Gas prices range from about $3.38 in the Roanoke metro area to $3.54 in the Norfolk area. Prices averaged $3.47 in the Charlottesville area and were $3.51 in the Richmond area.
The auto club says that compares with an average price at the pump nationwide of $3.69 a gallon.
Officials with AAA say some analysts now believe motorists may have already seen the gas price peak for the summer.
