CAMARILLO, Calif. (AP) — The average price of regular grade gasoline has fallen nationally to $2.20 per gallon, a drop of 6 cents over the past two weeks.

Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg updated the figures Sunday, predicting that prices would continue inching down unless a meeting of oil-producing nations later this month culminates in “a credible agreement to freeze or reduce” production.

A seasonal weakness in demand was one reason behind the early-November decline. Lundberg cited another influence: With autumn maintenance projects wrapping up, U.S. refiners are increasing supplies.

Those factors combined to create the drop in average prices, despite a small rise in crude oil prices. Crude oil was trading at $45.61 per barrel Sunday night, according to GasBuddy.com.

The average price in Michigan for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline was $2.11 and falling Sunday evening, according to GasBuddy. The average in Grand Rapids was about $2.15 and falling.
