AAA: Cheapest December national gas price average in two years

gas pricesAt $2.37, the national gas price average continues to drive toward the cheapest pump prices seen during the month of December since 2016, which is welcome news for the millions of Americans expected to begin holiday travel later this week.

“Cheaper gas prices are a gift for holiday travelers hitting the roads this year,” said Tammy Arnette, Senior Public Affairs Specialist for AAA. “In Virginia, motorists are saving on average $10-$15 per fill up compared to the 2018 peak in May at $2.76 per gallon.”

On the week, states are seeing gas price averages that are as much as 12-cents cheaper. Florida (+1 cent) is the only state to see gas prices increase, while Missouri’s gas price average dropped to $1.96.

The national average is a nickel less than last week, 26-cents less than last month and six-cents less than a year ago. With gasoline production on the high side – 10 million b/d – amid low demand, motorists can expect gas prices to continue declining through year-end.
