"The national average has begun to drop nicely over the last week, and while it certainly doesn't feel like much, it is noteworthy," Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst with GasBuddy.com, said in a release. "Oil prices were all over the map last week, closing in on $100 a barrel and dropping to $92 a barrel later in the week. I've probably had more double takes watching oil prices in the last week than I've had all summer."
