HOLLEY – Regular unleaded gas was selling for $1.99 a gallon today at the Crosby’s in Holley. I didn’t think I would ever see gas fall below $2 again.

In December 2014, just over a year ago, gas was selling for about $3 a gallon. In the spring 2014, the prices were closer to $4 a gallon. Prices nationally on average went over $3 per gallon in 2010 and did go below $3 until December 2014.

AAA reported on Monday that the average price for regular unleaded gas in the U.S. was $1.783, while the average price in New York was $2.054. AAA says gas prices are their lowest since January 2009.
