AAA: Utah gas prices drop slightly

SALT LAKE CITY -- Gas prices are going down in Utah, just as they are in 30 other states.

AAA reports Tuesday that the average price of gas in Utah is $3.75 per gallon. That's 8 cents lower than a month ago but 16 cents higher than a year ago.

Officials with AAA say it's typical for gas prices to go down this time of year, even though headlines in the past week have focused on big price hikes in California and elsewhere.

Prices in Ogden and Salt Lake City are the lowest in the state at $3.71 per gallon, while prices in Moab and St. George are the highest at $3.86 per gallon.

Utah's prices are a little below the national average of $3.82 per gallon.
