If you plan on traveling by car during the holiday season, you may not have to spend as much on gas as you might expect.
According to Gasbuddy.com, prices are continuing to drop nationwide and in Chico the average gas price is down another 4 cents, to an average of $2.77 a gallon. The average in Chico has dropped by 23 cents in the last month and the average Monday is 71.5 cents lower than it was at this time last year.
Prices in California are still a bit higher than the rest of the country. The national average is $2.57 a gallon and as of Sunday night, 13 states had at least one gas station with prices below $2 a gallon.
Gasbuddy analyst Patrick DeHaan says motorists are saving $270 million dollars every day versus pump prices a year ago.
