Drivers in Westchester and all over are likely letting out a sigh of relief because of lower gas prices.
Karen Frenza, of Yonkers, says now that gas prices are going down, she doesn't mind filling up her SUV. "You have more money left over, reserves for food and other extra Christmas things," she says. "So, it's a significant difference."
In January, AAA estimated that the national average for a gallon of gas was $3.32; that amount is now down to $2.79 a gallon. Closer to home, found some area gas stations selling gas for as low as $2.44 a gallon.
"For me to fill this truck up before was a good $65, $70. Now it's down to around $45," says Brian Mooney, of Yonkers. "It's definitely a very big difference."
He and other drivers hope that difference will continue well into the new year.
