Turns out, 33 cents in one week is the biggest price drop in the history of anyone paying attention to the national average price of a gallon of gas. Currently, the national average price is $3.12, according to AAA. With the price of oil below $80 a barrel, this price could come down even more over the next few weeks, bringing $3 gas back into sight.
Even at $3.12, though, gas prices are probably the one part of the economy people don’t need to sweat right now. However, car-buying trends still point to a decline in large SUV sales and an uptick in sales of efficient vehicles.
