Gas Prices Expected to Get Lower as Year Ends

We’re pretty sure you’re sick of getting mugged by gas pumps every time you need to fill up the tank. Things aren’t great, but they’re getting better. While the average price of gas is still expected to be much higher in 2012 than it was in 2011, fueling up should cost you less as the year winds down. Projections suggest that the national average should drop to $3.40-3.50 a gallon by election day and will likely drop some more by the time the holidays roll around. Happy savings. [Inquirer]
