PORTLAND, Oregon — Oregon drivers are benefiting from the nation's largest monthly drop in gas prices.

Marie Dodds, spokeswoman for AAA Oregon/Idaho, said Tuesday the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded in Oregon is $3.07 — down 47 cents from a month ago. Oregon's high for the year was $3.98 cents on July 3.

The national average for regular unleaded fell to $2.93 a gallon, the lowest since December 2010.

Within Oregon, the average price has fallen just below $3 a gallon in the Medford area. It's $3.04 in Portland, $3.06 in Bend and $3.08 in Salem.

The decline has been fueled by a drop in crude oil prices. The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, or OPEC, is expected to decide Nov. 27 whether to cut production to strengthen prices.
