Monday the average price for a gallon in the u-s was two seventy two. A week ago a gallon of gas was at two eighty one. A month ago motorists were paying over three dollars a gallon. Some drivers say they should not be paying that much for gas to begin with. Most drivers we spoke with were enjoying the low gas prices and the extra spending cash. Others were not so optimistic about the dropping gas prices; they`re not counting on them staying low.
