January 23, 2002|Reuters

U.S. retail gasoline prices declined for the second week in a row, dropping 0.6 cents a gallon over the last week to $1.105, the Energy Department reported.

The pump price of regular unleaded gasoline is down 37 cents from a year ago, according to a weekly survey of more than 800 service stations.

The national average price for cleaner-burning reformulated gasoline, sold at about one-third of the stations in cities and smoggier areas, was up 0.7 cents to $1.141 a gallon.

Prices for regular gasoline on the West Coast increased 1.4 cents to $1.198 a gallon.
