National average continues to march lower

GasBuddy Blog -- Americans continue to see relief at the pump in the weeks ahead of the Christmas holiday. The national average declined another five cents per gallon in the last seven days, falling to an average $3.34/gal. The decline has also narrowed the gap between what Americans paid in the run up to Christmas 2011, with prices today just a nickle higher than a year ago.

Four U.S. states already have gasoline prices under their December 25, 2011 average: Alaska, Hawaii, Minnesota, and Oregon. Alaska is an astonishing 47c/gal lower than just a year ago on this date, while the other areas are just pennies lower.

if we kept all the oil we drill here instead of sending it overseas, and use our huge natural gas reserves, we could be energy independent. we built an alaska pipeline only to send all that oil out to the open market. energy independence is not going to happen. already they are talking about exporting our natural gas reserves, this is really madness at it's best. we should all get a piece of the profits if this happens, but it will go in the pockets of fatcats who do not care about America but only lining their pockets using our natural resources. God help us, please.

We are going up in central Texas. The Federal Reserve is printing money again. So oil will go up. The Euro is stronger against the dollar over the past few weeks. This is another confirmation point on printed money.

Lowest around here was about 3.10, my route has mostly 3.21 as the lowest. Last night one of the stations went up by a dime from 3.29 to 3.39. The party is over, and it's not even the holidays yet...

I hope it keeps on marching lower! It hasn't been under $3/gal all year around here. The lowest I see now is $3.33, still has a way to go!

It's that time of year! No one wants to drive that much, so prices drop. Just wait until next spring - when you want to go somewhere - then prices will climb to new record highs!

I just checked Oklahoma City @ $2.859 which is $0.759/liter in Canada, the lowest price in Canada is $0.959/liter in Edmonton Alberta. Our currency is virtually at par so you people have very little to complain about with your gas prices as they are still dropping.
