Oklahomans wrap up the year with some of the lowest gas prices

Average retail gasoline prices in Colorado have fallen 5.2 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.46 a gallon, according to GasBuddy's survey of 2,158 gas outlets in the state.

Gas prices are down in Rhode Island and MA the day after Christmas, according to AAA Northeast.

Auto club AAA announced the new lower prices in a press release Tuesday.

The price for gas in Central Florida is ending 2017 nearly where it started.

Patriots in driver's seat, Bills facing must win in finale
So, is there a reason for the success? Preparation, concentration and execution have gotten the job done more often than not. Gronkowski almost had a second score when the Bills chose to go with the maybe-we-should-just-go-ahead-and-hug-him route.

Nationally, average prices also rose a penny to $2.43 a gallon. "After the holidays, gasoline demand takes a sharp turn lower, because fewer people take extended road trips in January".

GasBuddy blamed the increase on refinery outages in the Midwest, but said easing demand as the weather gets colder and Americans drive less could lower gas prices in the near future. The cheapest prices are in the Tampa area ($2.29), Orlando ($2.30) and Jacksonville ($2.31).

The national average has gone up 16.6 cents since a year ago and is down 4.5 cents since last month.

Gas prices should dip for the winter, but Jenkins warned of a spring surge of 30 cents to 70 cents a gallon as oil refineries conduct scheduled maintenance. That's about 2 cents higher than a week ago and about 13 cents higher than a year ago.
