Better late than never, drivers say.
The national average retail price has fallen for 10 straight days and is now $3.67 per gallon.
On the North Olympic Peninsula, the average price of regular on Monday was $3.99 a gallon, an 11-cent drop in a week, a Peninsula Daily News survey showed.
Gas prices have remained stubbornly high well past their traditional Memorial Day weekend peak, due largely to supply shortages, refinery woes on the West Coast and in the Midwest and high oil prices.
Here are some metropolitan area gas prices from a Monday survey by the Washington AAA auto club:
Bellingham $4.08, Bremerton $3.97, Seattle-Bellevue-Everett $4.02, Tacoma $3.94, Olympia $3.98, Vancouver $4, Yakima $3.96, Tri-Cities $3.93, Spokane $3.90.
