Prices in N.O. drop 5 cents in past week, down 17 cents over past month
The price of gasoline continues to fall across the country.
Oil industry analyst Trilby Lundberg describes what has happened over the past month as "a true price crash."
Lundberg says prices began to drop as the seasonal demand for gasoline fell and problems at refineries were fixed.
