Sat, 15 Dec 2012 11:12:10 GMT — Gas prices will soon drop to their lowest level of the year. By Monday, the national average should fall below the $3.2775 a gallon drivers were paying on Jan. 1, according to analysts. The drop is a present for those planning to hit the road during what is expected to be the busiest Christmas travel season in six years. Still, it's more like a stocking stuffer. That's because for the second straight year, Americans will spend a record amount on gasoline. The government estimates that gas averaged $3.63 a gallon this year, 10 cents above the record set a year ago. Drivers can only hope that forecasts for lower prices next year come true.
