As we head into the Christmas holiday there is more good news for travelers as gas prices continue to drop here both in Maine whose average price today (12/14/21) is at $3.42/ gallon and nationally at $3.32/ gallon.

According to the price monitoring site Gas Buddy, the average price for a gallon of regular gas in Maine this week is moving closer to the $3.00 per gallon mark, with only one station statewide hitting the $2.99/ gallon mark and that is in Brownfield.

A little closer to home, the best we could find was $3.06/ gallon at both Walmart & BJ's in Auburn.

In Augusta, the cheapest price we could find was at the Fabian Station at 363 Western Ave which is selling gas at $3.29 a gallon along with other places in the Augusta area include the Gas For Less 393 Western Ave, the Citgo 2631 Middle Rd, in Sidney, and the Citgo at 324 Service Plaza Drive all at $3.29/ gallon.

In Waterville, the Shell Station at 500 KMD reported gas at $3.24/ gallon. Other inexpensive places to buy gas in Waterville are the Irving at 445 KMD, which is selling gas at $3.31/ gallon.

Of course it's all relative as we get excited about gas getting closer to $3.00/ gallon, it's hard to ignore that last year when the national average was $2.16/gallon.
