Transcript for Decreasing Oil Prices Leading to Cheap Gas Across America
George, we turn to the cost of driving. Fast falling gas prices dropping to their lowest level in more than five years. Look at this map. You can find at least one station selling it for under $2 a gallon in 43 different states. ABC's Clayton Sandell found the cheapest gas in the whole country at a station in tomball, Texas. Good morning to you, Clayton. Reporter: Hey, good morning, Lara. Take a look at this. The price here, $1.47. The lowest we've been able to find anywhere in the station in Texas. Look at this. The average price of a gallon of regular now stands at $2.14. That is down 8 cents in just the last week. Down a whopping $1.19 compared to a year ago. The last time the average price of gas was this low was in may 2009 and just for comparison, even the doughnuts here at this gas station now more expensive than gas, $1.59 and take a look at this. On average you can now fill up your tank for about $36. That is enough to go about 400 miles but just back in June that same amount, 36 bucks would have only gotten you about half a tank. Now the even better news this plunge may not be over and we could be seeing Ang average price of gas about $1.25 by next month. Big savings, Lara. Unbelievable. That's a lot of doughnuts. Even the doughnuts more expensive. Clayton, we thank you so much. Time to take a road trip. Let's take one. Look at that price. Did it just go down as we spoke? It did. It did. It makes me want to drive around to gas stations. Cash or credit though does make a difference. Clayton, we thank you.
