The national average has declined for over a month straight- a streak many motorists likely doubted when we first posted about this likelihood several weeks ago. This morning, the U.S. average stands at $3.509/gal, and will likely drop under $3.50/gal in the next 48 hours.
The most common price found across the nation today according to GasBuddy.com data is $3.399/gal, down from $3.499/gal a week ago, and down from $3.599/gal a month ago.
Today, just 3.8% of stations nationally stand over $4/gal, down from 4.1% yesterday, and down from 5.5% last week. Just a month ago, 8.8% of gas stations in the U.S. were over $4/gal.
