According to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report, crude oil settled below $80 per barrel yesterday for only the fourth time in 2011, as worldwide economic woes continued to weigh on commodities and equities markets alike.

Oil futures are traded in dollars and as the currency weakens relative to those overseas, the effective price of oil for those outside of the U.S. becomes cheaper.

Oil futures become a more attractive investment and prices are pressured upward.

While crude oil prices have seen sharp price increases and decreases on a daily basis, drivers have experienced welcome relief as the national price at the pump has continued to move lower for nearly a month.

The current national average retail price for a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline is $3.408 down 25.4 cents from last month.
