Falling gas prices, an early Christmas gift?

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

There may be a bit of holiday cheer at an unusual place this December, the gas station.  Prices at the pump have been plummeting for more than a month.

If someone were to ask for one Christmas wish, this might not be on the top of the list, but they would not be complaining either.

For five straight weeks gas prices have been falling.  In Arizona the average is $3.38 a gallon, that puts Arizona among the lowest in the U.S.  One of the few times ranking the lowest is a good thing for the state. 

Tucson, as usual is the lowest average in the Grand Canyon state, with average prices at $3.15 a gallon. 

AAA Arizona says this is a trend that many can plan on seeing through the end of the year. 

This is good news for families traveling for the December holidays, or taking weekend trips to any of the festivals, tree-lighting and snowfalls, that we have been telling you about.  Or just taking a drive to soak up the late Fall sunshine.
