For a long stretch, which began in mid-December and lasted until late last month, crude oil traded below $50 a barrel. This pulled gasoline prices below $2 in a number of states and cities. Crude has been above $55 most of the past month though, and that means drivers can say goodbye to $1.99 gas prices almost everywhere in America.
Research firm GasBuddy determines the trend of gas prices based on the average cost at the pump for a gallon of regular at approximately 150,000 gas stations. At those stations, it tracks over 10 million transactions a week. Last week, the number of stations that sell gas for $2 or less dropped to 11,286. On December 9, that number was nearly 36,000. Only one state, Mississippi, has an average price for a gallon for regular below $2. Currently, the number in the state is $1.99.
The average price for a gallon of regular across the country was $2.19 last week. The research firm also measures what the most common price is across the 150,000 stations. Last week, that most common price per station also was $2.19 per gallon. The second most common price was $2.09 per gallon, and the third most common price was $2.29.
