(NECN) – We have a look at gas prices on this Tuesday morning. AAA reports gas prices have dipped one cent in the past week. The U.S. average is now $3.50 per gallon for regular grade. It's a considerable decline from last month's average of $3.63.

And it appears it's also leading more Americans to open their wallets and spend more money, creating the biggest jump in nearly two years.

And there’s yet another car recall, this time for Subaru. The company is recalling more than 10,000 2014 Forester wagons because heat exposure can make the floor mats curl and interfere with the clutch, brake or gas pedals. The recall applies to Foresters made from January 2013 through March. Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will replace all four mats free of charge.

Finally, there’s a shirt for men who hate the responsibility of washing clothes. American Company Wool and Prince claims to have designed a button-up shirt that doesn't have to be washed regularly. In fact, the company says the shirt can be worn up to 100 days without being washed. The shirts are made of wool, making it less likely to wrinkle and it can also resist odors.
