AAA Mid-Atlantic says gas prices in Virginia have gone down in the month of March.

Gas prices have fallen by an average of 3 cents per gallon in the Virginia over the past week.

The price of a gallon of regular gasoline now averages $3.55 statewide. That's down slightly from the week before and 33 cents lower than a year ago.

Analysts with AAA Mid-Atlantic say prices now range from about $3.43 a gallon in the Roanoke metro area to $3.55 around Norfolk. Prices averaged approximately $3.52 in the Richmond area and some parts of northern Virginia.

The auto club reports the average price nationwide is $3.64. That's down 5 cents from the previous week and 28 cents lower than a year ago.

AAA suggests while prices have declined throughout most of March, it's still too early to say whether retail prices have peaked for the spring.
