According to AAA-Chicago, the nationwide average for a gallon of gasoline reached $1.80 on Wednesday.

For some perspective, gas prices in America are down 34 cents from one month ago.  Gas prices in several states have dropped below $1.49, with Wisconsin leading the way at $1.21, all thanks to record low oil prices and a huge glut of supply.

Gas Buddy analyst Patrick De Haan:

The national average could reach $1.49 before things turn around, which would mark a level that hasn’t been seen since 2004. Unfortunately for motorists, it may not fully make it to the pump given that stations are trying to keep the doors open – by holding prices from falling -- even with volume down 50-70 percent.

As it stands right now, a bunch of states are offering gas at under $1.00 per gallon, and a Marathon Gas station in Francis Creek, Wisconsin listed regular for 86 cents on Wednesday morning.
