Gasoline Prices Continue To Fall After Record-Breaking 2012

CHICAGO (CBS) — So far, it’s been a happy new year for Chicago drivers.

After a year of record-breaking gasoline prices, motorists are enjoying a reprieve at the pump.

And experts says prices should continue to drop.

AAA Chicago Motor Club said in September drivers paid about $4.48 a gallon and now it’s down to $3.57.

Analysts say consumers can expect the downward trend to continue as inventory piles up, thanks to lower demand this winter.
