PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – As gas prices drop lower, Pennsylvania has become the latest state to see its average dip below $2.
According to Gasbuddy.com, the current average price across the United States is now at $1.80, and in Pennsylvania it is at $1.99, the lowest price since March 2009.
Residents of Pennsylvania will appreciate the dipping price, as they pay the highest gasoline taxes in the country.
“We are saving money as a country, as individuals,” said Maria Csorba, of Edgewood.
Oh I love it. I’m not far getting to work, so what I pay for gas goes a long ways,” Gloria Barnes, of the South Hills, said.
Only seven states are still paying more than $2 for gasoline.
Cheap gas prices are going help your wallet in other ways as well. Your heating bill is going to be significantly lower this year.
Experts believe you’ll likely save about 10 percent on your natural gas bills compared to last year. If you use heating oil, you’ll likely save about 15 percent, and 3 percent less on electricity.
