COMMACK - Average gas prices have dropped noticeably on Long Island since Superstorm Sandy struck and brought a shortage, according to AAA.

The group says average gas prices on Long Island are down 26 cents from the high that prices surged to during the storm. The Long Island Gasoline Retailers Association says the supply is getting back to normal.

Still, Long Island prices remain at record highs, despite the decline. The national average has broken a daily high more than 65 percent of the time in 2012. And says Americans spent more on gas in 2012 than in any other year on record.
