Gas prices are lowest since late last winter
Saving 7 cents on a gallon of gas sounds like small change compared with $200 off the price of a flat-screen TV. But drivers will take it this holiday season. The average price for a gallon of gas has fallen to $3.31 from $3.38 in just a week. The discount is an even heftier 20 cents a gallon compared with two months ago. In fact, shoppers driving from store to store on the first weekend of the holiday shopping season are paying some of the lowest prices for gas since late winter.
