National average gas prices declined to $2.12 as crude oil prices have continued to decrease amid mounting concerns about the increase in global coronavirus cases and the reinstatement of lockdown policies in some countries, according to AAA.
“The national gas price average at the start of November has not been this cheap since 2004. If crude oil continues to push cheaper, we could see the national average drop below $2/gallon before the end of the year,” said Jeanette Casselano McGee, AAA spokesperson.
Today, motorists can find gas for $2 per gallon or less at 52% of gas stations, nationwide.
The nation’s top 10 largest weekly decreases were Ohio (down 9 cents), Indiana (down 8 cents), Washington, D.C. (down 8 cents), Michigan (down 7 cents), Kentucky (down 6 cents), Texas (down 4 cents), North Carolina (down 4 cents), South Carolina (down 4 cents), Tennessee (down 4 cents) and Minnesota (down 4 cents).
Meanwhile, the nation’s least expensive markets are Missouri ($1.79), Mississippi ($1.81), Texas ($1.81), Oklahoma ($1.81), Arkansas ($1.83), South Carolina ($1.84), Louisiana ($1.86), Alabama ($1.86), Tennessee ($1.87) and Kansas ($1.90).
