Gas prices in Pittsburgh are lower than they’ve been since 2010. According to Gregg Laskoski, Senior Petroleum Analyst at GasBuddy.com, prices could stay low throughout the holiday season.

Right now gas in Pennsylvania is roughly $3.40, down from $3.70 just a couple years ago, reports Laskoski. He attributes the price drop to the changing of the seasons.

“At this time of year, we now see the winter blend of gasoline being introduced, which really brings prices down because it has less additives and costs refineries less to produce,” he says.
