Gas prices around the country are nearing levels last seen over a decade ago.

The national average right now hovers around $2.21 a gallon, which is essentially what we’re seeing in and around Watertown.

Going back to September of 2015, gas prices for our region were about $2.40, right around twenty cents higher than now.

According to the numbers, the lower prices could amount to an extra $320 in savings for the average family for the year.
