The average price at the pump continued to fall this week as crude oil prices declined due to a struggling economy worldwide.

The average price per gallon of regular, unleaded gasoline in western Pennsylvania fell 6.2 cents to $3.47, according to the AAA East Central Fuel Gauge released Tuesday. It still has a ways to go before reaching the year-ago average of $2.74, however.

Nationwide, the average price at the pump fell to its lowest price in seven months: nearly $3.41.

The cheapest available gasoline in the region was in Brookville, where gas averaged $3.33 per gallon. The most expensive region for gasoline was Bradford and Warren, both at $3.54 per gallon.
