GasBuddy.com does a daily survey of 775 gas outlets in Seattle. Including the change in gas prices in Seattle during the past week, prices are 26.2 center per gallon lower than the same day one year ago; they’re 25.9 cents per gallon lower than one year ago.

    Yeah, this is great, but……………..for how long, before they rise again, and a little higher than before they began falling! You take advantage of the fall while you can, because just as sure as the sun rises every day, the prices WILL, go up again, with the only question being…….WHEN.
