Prices in Maine are now almost 40 cents lower than on the same day last year and more than 21 cents per gallon lower than a month ago.
The Maine prices are based on a survey of more than 1,200 gas stations in the state.
A company analyst is warning consumers not to get too comfortable with the prices, as they are expected to start rising again soon.
