Gas Could Cost Less In 2013
By Catalina Trivino

There's good news at the pump for 2013... it looks like gas won't be as high compared to last year.

Currently, Alabama is averaging $3.23 per gallon -- that's four cents less than this time last year and last month.


According to AAA, most Alabamians will be spending in between $3.50 to $3.70 this year -- which is a lot lower than the national average price of gasoline in 2012, which peaked at $3.94 a gallon.

This year, AAA estimates the national average prices should peak between $3.60 to $3.80. AAA says gas will be less expensive because of increased domestic oil production and lower demand.

"Gas prices staying down is going to save a whole bunch of money. I'll be able to take some trips on my bikes now and go cross country. I had to stay home last year because it cost too much," Said Greenville resident, Marcus Christianson.
