De Haan remarked on December 6 that a price of $3.29 per gallon “should materialize in the next few days.”

On Thursday, De Haan predicted that the national average for Christmas will be $3.25 a gallon, down from $3.32 today.Despite recent price drops, Gasoline is still more than $1 more costly than it was a year ago.Gas prices in America will be lower this Christmas than they were on Thanksgiving, but they are likely to be very close to the all-time high of $3.26 per gallon in 2013, according to GasBuddy.
