Drivers Save as Oil Prices Drop to Lowest Levels in a Decade
Gas prices continue to drop to multi-year lows, with today's average price of $1.97 per gallon representing the cheapest average price at the pump since March 23, 2009. Gas prices have fallen for 55 of the past 66 days for a total savings of 26 cents per gallon and should remain relatively low because there is more than enough oil and gasoline around the world to meet demand.
ASCCA's digital magazine, The California Independent, has a new issue out. See the links below to view the magazine and take 'A Look Back at ASCCA 2015.'
