The national average price for unleaded gasoline fell nine-tenths of a cent to $2.448 per gallon for the week ending March 30, according to federal data.

Gasoline now costs $1.131 less than it did a year ago, and the price fell in six of the nine regions tracked by the U.S. Department of Energy. The sharpest decline came on the West Coast, where the price fell 4.7 cents to $3. It rose only in the East Coast (to $2.371), Lower Atlantic (up 4.4 cents to $2.337), and Rocky Mountain ($2.313) regions.

Prices also fell many of the states listed in the AAA's Daily Fuel Gauge Report. California again has the most expensive gasoline with an average of $3.204 per gallon followed by Hawaii ($3.142 per gallon). Gasoline in nine other states costs at least $2.50 per gallon. Five states have an average price of less than $2.20, including Mississippi, Alabama, New Jersey, Tennessee, and South Carolina.

Meanwhile, the average price of diesel fuel fell 4 cents to $2.824 per gallon. Diesel now costs $1.151 less than it did a year ago.
