If you're looking for a reason to spend just a little more on that Christmas gift this year, I've got one for you.  Experts are estimating that gas will be even cheaper next year.

The new study was posted on CNN Money and says that Americans can expect to pay an average of $1,962 for gas in their cars in 2015.  That figure is down 20% from the 2014 total.

The average price of a gallon in 2015 should be $2.60 . . . this year, it was $3.37.

So why is the price finally going down?  According to the article, it's because the U.S. has increased its oil production . . . demand is lower in Europe and Asia . . . and more people worldwide are driving hybrids and other fuel-efficient cars.

So now the real question is, when will those of us in WNY see these much lower prices?
