The price of a gallon of regular gasoline has fallen below $4 a gallon in the Portland area for the first time in 10 months.

Metro residents are paying $3.93 a gallon at the pump this week, according to AAA. Gas prices have been in a steep decline since October, when metro residents were paying $5.64 a gallon, a record high.

Across Oregon, prices dipped below the $4 a gallon threshold earlier this month and hit $3.82 this week. Nine of the states most rural counties are still paying more, though, the highest among them Baker County ($4.62), Curry County ($4.56) and Union County ($4.42).
