Gasoline varied significantly by region.The cheapest gas prices were found on the Gulf Coast, averaging $3.109 per gallon. Prices as high as $3.61 were seen on the West Coast.

The numbers came as the price of oil in New York trading in Monday settled at $88.85 per barrel, its lowest closing price since April 2013, following news the International Monetary Fund lowered its forecast for world economic growth to 3.8% for this year and the U.S. Energy Department cutting its forecast for global oil demand and prices for next year.
