For many American motorists, $3-a-gallon gasoline is becoming a distant memory.
Americans are likely to pay an average of $2.60 a gallon in 2020, according to fuel savings app GasBuddy‘s annual forecast.
On the whole, drivers haven’t paid more than $3 nationwide since 2014, when prices averaged $3.36, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. (Prices along the West Coast and in Hawaii have skewed higher.)
“It’s another good year for Americans to pump,” said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “I would not expect the national average this year to hit $3.”
