Va. gas prices fall by 6 cents a gallon

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia motorists are getting some relief at the gas pump.

AAA's Fuel Gauge says the price of a gallon of regular gasoline now averages $3.67 a gallon statewide. That's a drop of about 6 cents from last week and about 20 cents from a month ago.

But motorists are still paying more than $1 a gallon more in Virginia than they were a year ago.

Gas prices range from about $3.84 in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area to about $3.53 in the Roanoke metro area.

Gas prices nationally average $3.78.
