UNDATED -- For the first time in several weeks, we're paying less for gas in the St. Cloud metro area than the state and national averages.

Most gas stations in the St. Cloud area are selling a gallon of regular unleaded for $3.86 -- which is 13-cents cheaper than a week ago.

The statewide average is $3.90 and the national average is $3.93.

We're still paying about a dollar more per gallon than we were a year ago at this time.
