The average price of gas in Chico has fallen 1.4 cents in the past week, averaging $3.96 a gallon.
GasBuddy.com, a website that tracks prices from 76 Chico stations reported that the drop in price is still 11.9 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago and 4.9 cents per gallon lower than a month ago.
The national average has increased 2.6 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 3.7 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago.
"The national average has stayed relatively flat for the last month, but that appears to be over, as the escalating situation in Iraq takes hold and drives crude oil and retail gasoline prices higher," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.
