An AP news story this week about falling gas prices singled out a car stereo upgrade as the one thing consumers might do with the extra cash after filling up their tanks.
As the national average price of gasoline this week fell to $2.13/gallon, down from $3.63/gallon six months ago, it’s costing some drivers $40 less to fill up their tanks.
The AP story wrote, “That Chevy Tahoe you were eyeing will cost $39 less to fill up than it did in July. The Honda Fit now costs you just $23 to fill the tank. Maybe you can afford to throw in the booming premium stereo.”
Let’s hope drivers are thinking along the same lines.
A Ford F150 now costs $35 less to fill up than 6 months ago. The story lists the cost savings for other vehicles as well.
