BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV) - Gas prices in West Virginia continue to fall and are nearly a dollar lower than the all-time high set in June, according to AAA.

The average gas price per gallon for regular fuel in West Virginia is $3.996, more than 15 cents lower than last week’s average of $4.15. The average price per gallon one month ago was $4.64.

While gas prices are falling, they are still more than a dollar higher than last year’s average. Last year, the average price per gallon was only $3.05.

Meanwhile, gas prices for mid-grade, premium and diesel fuels have all fallen at least 15 cents in the last week. AAA says mid-grade has dropped from $4.44 to $4.27, premium has fallen from $4.70 to $4.54 and diesel has fallen from $5.36 to $5.21.
