Holiday driving will be a bit easier for most travelers around the U.S. thanks to decreasing gas prices. AAA predicts that the average cost of gas from across the country could fall below $3 per gallon by the end of 2013. With prices already set at approximately $3.24 per gallon, which is the lowest mark of the year, drivers could soon be seeing some major rewards at the pump, CNBC reported.
"There's a chance gasoline will dip below $3 [for the national average] but it will take a considerable rebound in the U.S. dollar or financial collapse to bring the national average below that," Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst for Gasbuddy.com, told CNBC. "That said, for people who really shop around gas, in most states they'll be able to find it for less than $3."
To further improve fuel efficiency, motorists should take their vehicles to an auto repair franchise. There a professional can examine a car to ensure that all parts are operating as they should, which in turn can improve the performance of a vehicle and its mileage.
