How Much You Saved at the Gas Pumps in 2015

Americans saved a collective $115 billion plus this year on trips to the gas station, according to AAA. The average licensed driver saving more than $550 as the average price for a gallon of gas never broke $3 in 2015 and it dropped below $2 in December, the first time since the Great Recession of 2009.

In Oklahoma, the savings could be more because gasoline prices dropped to a new average of $1.75 a gallon this week. AAA indicated that nearly 71 percent of gas stations in the U.S. are actually selling gasoline for less than $2 a gallon and 16,000 stations are pumping gasoline at less than $1.75. Oklahoma stations are among those 16,000.

The cheapest prices nationally are in the southeast where for the fourth straight year, South Carolina was the lowest countrywide at an average of $2.10 for 2015. Other states where savings were big were Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee and Louisiana. AAA also expects the annual average price of gas in 2016 to be between $2.25 and $2.45 a gallon.
