Remember the awful days when gas cost more than $4 a gallon? Those seem like a distant memory, as AutoBlog notes that the average gas price in the United States has now fallen below $2 a gallon for the first time since the depths of the Great Recession in earl 2009. Given this, we thought we’d scope out gas prices in some major cities in the U.S. to see where prices have really hit rock bottom. If you’re travelling by car for the holidays this year, you’ll want to make sure you fill up on this dirt-cheap gas while you can!
