Gas prices are finally starting to fall - and are expected to drop even further, according to a government report.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration says the national average price for a gallon of gas will be down to $3.01 by next month - and average $2.88 in the new year. The estimate is based on increased production and lower costs for barrels of oil.
Gas prices reached a high of $3.39 a gallon in November - the highest average in seven years. [CNN]
Keep in mind, here in California, the prices will be higher than the national average, but at least it's headed in the right direction.
