Gas prices have now declined for 35 straight days as the national average for a gallon of gas has dropped .50 cents to below $4.50 for the first time in two months.

From the Washington Post:

The national average stood at $4.495 on Tuesday, according to AAA, which represents a 10 percent pullback from its June peak above $5. A gallon of diesel, meanwhile, has dropped to $5.51, down 31 cents in the last month.

In some parts of the country, prices are even lower: There are now at least 35 states where at least one station is selling gas for less than $4 per gallon, according to the fuel-tracking app GasBuddy.

The lowest price can be found in Virginia, where at least two gas stations are selling a gallon of regular for $3.25.

Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for Gasbuddy, says the national average is on track to reach $4 per gallon.

That’s still higher than a year ago when the national average was $3.17.
