(CNN) -- Gas prices have plummeted 46 cents a gallon over the past two months, according to a survey released Sunday.

"This has been a true price crash," said Trilby Lundberg, publisher of the Lundberg Survey.

The average price of a gallon of regular gasoline is $3.38, down nearly a dime over the past three weeks, Lundberg said.

"This crash began back when refining problems around the country were being fixed, one after the other, at the same time that our seasonal gasoline demand was shrinking," she said.

Crude oil prices have also dropped after having risen steadily.

Prices at the pump should drop even more in the coming days, as refiners cut how much they're charging distributors and retailers, Lundberg said.

The national average is about 8 cents higher than the averag

They use the word "crash" like it's a bad thing for gas prices to drop.

$1 in three weeks would be a crash. A dime in three weeks isn't a crash.

SORRY, this one after the other thing has been going on for years, and the demand has been down for years, and just NOW they write about it ?????

Must be a note from the speculators to get the message out that they WANT the price to go down to make money!!

Yea, they CAN make money if the price goes down, but most of the time they want the price to go on the never ending roller coaster.

Yawn! More false writing, and bad lies!

Dropping a dime is not a crash. That is less than a 3% drop per gallon.

'crash' and we're still coughing up well over $3/gal.?!?!?! I'd consider a 'crash' having the price of gas in the buck fifty per gal. range...

This is a bunch of liberal BS talking points.
They act like $3.38 per gallon is peanuts. At this price, they should be developing new engines that run off of Pepsi at half the cost.

For those who don't remember, last year Christmas prices fell to $2.99 (which isn't any great bargain)

Still goes up a lot faster than it takes to drop.Not really what I would call a crash.If it would drop $1 in a day,I might consider calling it a crash.

But still too high for where it should be at current crude prices. It should be closer to the $2.50 mark and under.

I'm not sure that I would term this a "crash", but at $3.16 per gallon for unleaded regular, every drop is a welcomed relief from the high level of earlier this year. I can stand further reductions.

Load up those cans on low prices so you can sit out the high spots.
