SAN JOSE (KCBS) – For the first time in a long while, gasoline is selling for under $2 a gallon in some parts of the Bay Area.
At the Gas & Shop on McKee Road and 33rd Street in San Jose, regular was being sold at $1.99 a gallon. Business was brisk at the station well before sunrise.
Anh Wong, who commutes from San Jose to San Francisco, was among those filling up at the Gas & Shop Monday morning.
“The price before, we spent like $45. Now, it’s $30 bucks,” Wong told KCBS. Wong said he is now spending the extra money on his 10-month-old baby.
Other Bay Area cities where gas is being sold under $2 a gallon include Concord and Mill Valley. Prices are mainly low due to recent volatility in the crude oil market.
According to AAA, the average price for a gallon of regular in California is $2.50 a gallon.
