sub $3/gallon gas was great while it lasted, but unfortunately it has nearly
completely dried up," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick
DeHaan in a statement. "As of late Sunday night, zero states were seeing
their averages under $3/gallon. As the New Year rolls in, this is a type of
trend that we're used to seeing. The bottom is behind us and prices generally
begin the New Year on a higher note, like they will again this year. The trend
won't last forever though, as January and February feature generally weak
demand that should limit increases and keep prices relatively moderate for the
next month or two."
