Significant Savings From Lower Gas Prices

Updated:

If you filled up you gas tank over the weekend, you may have been pleasantly surprised.

The price of gas is down again, this time, below $2.80 a gallon at many stations in the Quad City area. At the Kwik Shop on E. Locust St. in Davenport, regular gas is going for $2.76 a gallon.

According to Triple A Motor Club, the average price for gas in the Iowa Quad Cities Monday is $2.87. What may be even more significant is how much more money is staying in your pocket. Compared to just a month ago, the average was $3.16 a gallon. For a car with a 16 gallon tank, that's a savings of $4.64 per fill up. Compared to the average price of gas a year ago at $3.29, the savings is $8.96.

The savings is also significant in the Illinois Quad Cities, where the average price for gas is $3.02 a gallon. It was $3.29 a month ago and $3.49 a year ago, according to Triple A.
