Washington, D.C. – Gas prices rang in the New Year by reaching the lowest average price ($1.997) for the holiday since 2009. Today’s average price of $1.99 per gallon is the cheapest average since March 25th, 2009, and the national average has moved lower for 50 of the past 59 days, largely due to an abundance of crude oil. Pump prices are discounted by fractions of a penny on the week, by five cents per gallon on the month, and are down by 22 cents on the year.
In 2015, consumers paid an annual average of $2.40 per gallon, which was the lowest annual average since 2009.

Gas prices on New Year’s Day are likely to be the lowest since January 1st, 2009
Tampa, FL – More than 90 million Americans, on the holiday road, are finding the lowest average gas prices for the year-end holidays since 2008-09. The national average price for a gallon of gasoline is $2.00 nationally, $2.01 in Florida, $1.91 in Georgia, and $1.76 in Tennessee.
“Gasoline could get even cheaper in the coming weeks, as some of the lowest prices of the year typically arrive in January,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Once the holiday season wraps up, fewer people take long distance road trips, leading to a downturn in demand at a time when supplies are high.”
