Drivers fueled up for the lowest price in three years during 2013, according to AAA, and even lower prices are expected in 2014.
The motorist group reports that the national average price for a gallon of regular gas was $3.49 in 2013. That's down about 12 cents from the record price set in 2012 and is a couple of cents cheaper than 2011.
"It was a relief to see gas prices decline in 2013 following record-breaking pain at the pump in recent years," said Avery Ash, an AAA spokesman. "Our hope is that prices will continue to fall as cars grow increasingly fuel efficient and refineries expand production to take advantage of the recent boom in North American crude oil."

I can buy a gallon of gas for $2.94 here, but a gallon of milk is still about $3.99.

Anything coming out of the Clinton News Network should be viewed with complete skepticism. The bottom line is the roller coaster ride of fuel prices under Oblamer will continue amid all the lies, coverups, scandals, failed economic policies, & gross incompetence. The working class taxpayers will continue to be screwed at the pump, with our utilities, & with our taxes to fund Oblamer's out of control entitlement spending. Stop this madness in Nov 2014!

Prices of oil and gasoline are still GOOFY high, and any hint of a crisis will cause prices to skyrocket.

It all depends on what state or region you are buying gas in. Prices vary greatly depending on state taxes as well as proximity to refining facilities.

I agree with pricewar, talk to us about lower prices when it is $2.00 a gallon.

It may be the lowest price in three years, but it IS still around $3.50 average!

Probably. The current increases are the companies gouging the public that loves to drive more during the holidays.
