Gas prices are expected to drop between 40 to 45 cents a gallon by the end of October, according to analysts. During the past decade, prices have dropped during this period an average of 23 cents a gallon. [MercuryNews]
However, because of a light hurricane season, an easing of tensions in the Middle East and refinery fixes at home in 2013, falling gas prices are expected to double last year’s fall drop.
According to AAA, California gas prices are currently just over $4 a gallon while the U.S. average is $3.49 a gallon.
