NASHUA - With the holiday season in full swing, gas prices have fallen throughout the region.

The average price throughout New Hampshire as of Nov. 15 was $2.16 per gallon, which is 3 cents lower than the previous week - although it's 6 cents higher than a year ago.

"Pump prices should continue to drop heading into the holiday season," said Dan Goodman, manager of public affairs for AAA Northern New England.

New Hampshire has the lowest average in Northern New England, with Massachusetts at $2.19 per gallon, Maine at $2.26 and Vermont at $2.28.

Tom Matthews, who filled up his Ford F-350 on Wednesday at the Sunoco Ultra Service Center on Amherst Street, said that despite driving a big truck, he hasn't put much thought into gas prices lately - especially compared to a few years few years ago.

"I definitely think about it less," he said.

Inside, Sunoco employee Kevin Griffin said business has been steady.

"It's been busier than last year," Griffin said.

Globally, crude oil prices are at three-month lows, which Goodman attributes to an abundance of crude oil in the global market.

Oil-producing countries continue to discuss production cuts ahead of their formal meeting on Nov. 30 in Vienna, the outcome of which Goodman said could affect retail oil prices.
