ABC News' Zunaira Zaki reports:

In the past week the national average price of gasoline has dropped six cents to $3.65 according to the Energy Department.

This marks the sixth week in a row where retail gas prices have dropped – a total of $0.25 in that period. On May 9 drivers were paying $3.97 with fears that $4+ prices were in store for the summer driving season.

Concerns about the U.S. and global economy and the continuing turmoil in North Africa and the Middle East have led to a drop in oil and gas prices

Meanwhile U.S. stock markets managed to end the day in positive territory ahead of a parliamentary vote in Greece that will determine the next step in the large bailout of that country.  The Dow was up 76 points for the day.
