Long lines are forming throughout the city as residents try to fill up their tanks.

As summer driving season kicks into full gear, gas prices continue to roll back.

The average New York City price at the pump has fallen to $3.72, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report, its lowest point since January.

Over the past week, the cost of gas has fallen three cents in the city and has dropped 23 cents over the past month.

Many gas stations around the borough come in well below the city average — with some price below $3.50 per gallon.

At this time last year New Yorkers were paying $3.98 for a gallon of gas.

Nationally, the average cost for a gallon of gas is $3.33, 27 cents lower than a month ago.
