Drivers are cheering as gas prices across the country continue to drop.

According to, a website that tracks gas prices around the country, last week the average price for a gallon of gas in Chico fell 2.9 cents, making the average $2.50 a gallon. The national average fell nearly 8 cents last week.

Including the change in gas prices in Chico during the past week, prices Sunday were 107.4 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 36.4 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 52.8 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 112.7 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.

Gasbuddy analyst Patrick Dehaan says 2015 will be a much better year at the pump than 2014, with most states predicted to see prices closer to $2 a gallon than $3.
