(Undated) -- Gasoline prices are on the decline in Minnesota as summer winds down.

The statewide average for regular unleaded is around $3.35 a gallon, and Gail Weinholzer of Triple-A Minnesota says that's the lowest Minnesotans have paid at the pump in August for a decade.

She expects the decline to continue, heading into the Labor Day weekend.

Weinholzer says crude oil prices have stabilized significantly and demand for gasoline has dropped this month.
