CAPE CORAL, Fla. - Gasoline prices have started to fall again after shooting up nearly 50 cents the week before Thanksgiving.

AAA says the decrease at the pump may not last too long because the cost of crude oil is beginning to rise.

Nationwide the average price for a gallon of regular, unleaded gasoline is $3.26.  The price in Southwest Florida is hovering around the $3.42 mark, down about 3 cents from a week ago.
