AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - The cost of a gallon of gas in Maine continues to trickle down, but the party may be over.

With the national average inching up a penny, Maine's prices are now two cents lower than the national average.

In-state prices are now almost 37 cents lower per gallon than at the same time last year and 16 cents lower than a month ago.

A company analyst says prices in some areas of the country are already on the rise again with crude oil prices on the way up.

Maine prices are based on a survey of more than 1,200 gas stations.
