  • Gas Prices Drop 3.3 Cents In Chattanooga

Gas prices for the year-end holidays should be on par with, and possibly lower than, last year, AAA said.

Gas prices have finally dropped below where they were when Hurrican Harvey sent them skyrocketing.

"Forty-four percent of the Washington metro area's 6,131,977 residents plan to take a trip for the Christmas/New Year's holiday travel period with 91 percent of them traveling by vehicle", said John B. Townsend II, AAA Mid-Atlantic's Manager of Public and Government Affairs. "So today, motorists can find gas for $2.50 or less at 71 percent of gas stations in the country". The Florida average is falling at a rate of a penny per day. IN was the lone state with prices advancing an average of 3.6 cents per gallon due to price cycling last week Tuesday.

Gas prices are expected to continue to fall based on last year's holiday trend.

There is still a potential for further reductions in price.

AAA expects gasoline demand to weaken throughout the winter, which translates to better prices at the pump.

Adding to the declining trend, US refineries switch late in the year to a winter blend of gasoline, which is less expensive to make because more steps are needed with the summer blend to prevent excessive evaporation. The average price for a gallon of gas in CT is $2.65 ($2.67), $2.63 in NY ($2.65) and $2.71 in Pennsylvania ($2.73).

That's nine cents above the national average of $2.43 per gallon.

Just in time for the holidays, gas prices in Florida have finally returned to pre-Hurricane Irma levels. Prices at the pump have been estimated to drop as much as eight more cents by Christmas Day.
