During the month of November, gas stations in almost 30 states will be selling gas for less than $3 a gallon. This will be the first time gas prices will be less than $3 since the fall of 2010. Right now only 2.62 percent of gas stations sell gas below $3, but that number will increase to 20 percent in November and December.
The two reasons behind lowering gas prices are: an abundant increase in the United States production of crude and a decrease in the demand of gasoline. If these two factors continue, gas prices will remain low for four more years during Autumn. Drivers will be able to save on gas during Thanksgiving and the holiday shopping season. According to GasBuddy.com, South Carolina has the lowest average gas price at $3.09 in the U.S. Hawaii has the highest average at $4.21. The average gas price in the U.S. last week was $3.34, one cent below the week earlier.
