AAA: Gas prices drop to lowest seen in over a year

What you've been paying at the pump lately might make you smile.

AAA says gas prices are the lowest they've been in more than 17 months.

The national average is $2.29 a gallon, 24 cents less than one month ago and 16 cents less than at the same time last year.

Here in Georgia, nearly 30 percent of gas stations have prices lower than $2.

The current statewide average is $2.10 for a gallon.

AAA says the lower price trend will likely continue through the new year.
