Gas Prices Continue to Slide
The national average price for unleaded fuel has fallen for 30 consecutive days and is at its lowest mark for this date since 2004, reports AAA.  This current streak of declines is the longest since last fall when prices dropped for 37 straight days beginning August.  Today’s national average price for regular unleaded gasoline is $2.23 per gallon, which represents a savings of four cents per gallon on the week and 14 cents per gallon on the month.  Year-over-year drivers continue to benefit from noticeable discounts at the pump to refuel their vehicles with prices down 53 cents per gallon compared to this same date last year.   Crude oil prices continue to retreat in the U.S. trading market ending the week at $45 a barrel.  With processed fuel prices retreating in the commodities market, motorists may soon see prices retreat below $2 a gallon in many markets across the south central and southeastern states, says AAA.  South Caroline posts the lowest average in the nation with fuel averaging $1.92 a gallon.  California maintains the highest average at $2.88 a gallon.  Nebraska’s fuel price average is currently $2.25 a gallon with four communities (out of 178 Nebraska cities) reporting averages below $2 a gallon.
