There is a bit of good economic people that Vermonters are getting when they fill their cars with gas.

The average price at the pump in the state has dropped below $2 a gallon for the first time in almost four years.

According to AAA’s daily retail survey, the $1.98 price per gallon of gasoline is down from $2.75 in November and $3.12 a year ago.

But Vermont’s $1.98 average is higher than the national average of $1.82.

AAA Vermont Manager Tom Williams says the lower prices were likely driven by a drop in crude oil prices following a decrease in demand as the global economy slowed.

He says the last time gas prices were below $2 in Vermont was on March 8, 2005.
