2013 Gas Lower Than Past 2 Years

Drivers paid less at the pump in 2013 than the previous two years, AAA reported on Tuesday. U.S. drivers paid on average $3.49 per gallon for gas in 2013, down from a peak in 2012 of $3.60. It's also down from 2011, when drivers paid an average of $3.51 per gallon, the second highest price on record."It was a relief to see gas prices decline in 2013 following record-breaking pain at the pump in recent years," said Jenny M. Robinson of AAA in a statement on Tuesday. "Our hope is that prices will continue to fall as cars grow increasingly fuel efficient and refineries expand production to take advantage of the recent boom in North American crude oil." The trend is expected to continue in 2014/Laura Barron-Lopez, The Hill. More here.

Question: What did you pay for gas last time you were at the pumps (and where did you buy it)?
