Gasoline is close to breaking below a key psychological barrier as drivers enjoy some of the cheapest pump prices since the recession.
The nationwide average price of a gallon of regular Saturday was $2.02, down 58 cents from this time last year, according to auto club AAA. Experts say it could drop below $2 in the coming days.
For consumers, this winter is shaping up to be a good one, energy-wise: With oil below $40, natural gas under $2, and a relatively warm winter predicted, they also stand to pay less to heat their homes.
According to data compiled by AAA and the Oil Price Information Service, drivers in about half of the states are already paying below $2 for gas. South Carolina has the lowest average price at $1.79 a gallon. At the high end, Californians are paying $2.65 and Hawaiians are shelling out $2.76.
