Gas prices fall throughout the country

(CBS) -- Drivers across the country are finding a holiday gift at the gas station: lower prices.


Cheryl Holt drives several hours to visit family each week.

"I feel great, a little money in my pocket!" he said.

According to AAA, the average price for a regular gallon of gas is down about 30 cents compared to one month ago.

"It's nice when the price goes down. I mean, now around Xmas time. it's great with the family and the presents and kids and what not...It's a good thing," said Sean Coyle, a truck driver.

AAA says gas is cheaper because there is a higher supply of oil right now.

"Oil prices have mostly declined because of increased production from the Middle East as well as increased production in the U.S., and that has increased the amount of oil that's on the market," said Devin Gladin with AAA.

Every state country has seen a double-digit drop in prices--a downward trend that's expected to continue.

"As the remainder of winter progresses, drivers will likely see those prices continue to fall."

But enjoy while it lasts. Prices will ramp up when the weather starts warming up this spring.
