DES MOINES, Iowa — Christmas has come early at the gas pump this year.

The American Automobile Association says the national average for a gallon of gas is down to $2. It also says that more than two-thirds of stations are selling gas for less than that.

That’s definitely happening here in the Des Moines metro.

The lowest price AAA found in the metro is $1.64 per gallon at the Sam’s Club in Ankeny. The average price of a gallon of gas is $2.16 in the metro.

Analysts predict these prices will stick around into at least January.
