US gasoline price drops 11.1 cents in one week-Govt

WASHINGTON, May 23 (Reuters) - The U.S. average price for gasoline fell 11.1 cents over the last week to $3.85 a gallon, as cheaper crude oil saved drivers money at the pump, the Energy Department said on Monday.

The national gasoline price is still $1.06 higher than a year ago, based on the department's weekly survey of service stations. (Reporting by Tom Doggett)
