(HOUSTON CHRONICLE) The average gasoline price has broken its daily record for 43 days straight, making last month the priciest September in history for drivers, according to AAA.
The price for a gallon hit an average $3.78 Monday, continuing the six-week streak of record-breaking days. The previous high for Oct. 1 was in 2008, when the average gallon cost $3.62.
While the cost of gasoline has been declining, it hasn’t been falling as fast as usual for early fall. AAA forecasts that the trend of historic highs will continue at least through the year, which would make 2012 the most expensive year ever for drivers.
