Gas prices continue to fall dramatically in the Valley, with prices averaging $2.57 for a gallon of unleaded gasoline in Fresno and the South Valley.
Over the last month, the average price in Fresno fell 35 cents, and it fell 27 cents in the Visalia-Tulare-Porterville area, according to AAA of Northern California.
AAA released its monthly gas price report Tuesday.
Statewide, prices are at $2.58 a gallon — down 39 cents since last month. Nationally, prices fell 54 cents to an average $2.12 a gallon.
The price drop is driven by plummeting crude oil prices, which are pushed down by weak demand and abundant supply.
