Including the change in gas prices in Texas during the past week, prices yesterday were 26.3 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 24.9 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 21.7 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 14.0 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.
"The national average has now dropped to its lowest level since February 4," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "Gasoline can be found as cheap as $2.73 per gallon today in Taylors, SC. While this certainly isn't going to be the price of every station, a majority of gasoline outlets are featuring prices that have come down significantly in the last month, similar to that of the sentiment of Chicago Cubs fans," DeHaan said.
