Vancouver’s average gasoline price for a gallon of regular unleaded dropped by 1.3 cents for the week, to $4.27, while Oregon’s statewide average for a gallon of regular gasoline dropped 2.5 cents to $4.23, AAA Oregon/Idaho reported Tuesday.

Meanwhile, wholesale gasoline prices have dropped significantly on the West Coast over the past week, AAA said, and those lower prices should cut prices at the pump soon.
