The national average for gas prices is lower than they were a year ago, and the lowest since 2010. Will it stay that way all summer?

The national average for a litre of gasoline sits at 108.9, which is the first time in 186 that the current gas price is lower than the gas price was a year ago. It's also the cheapest June 9 to fill up on since 2010. At that time, 99.7 cents per litre was the national average.

The prairie provinces are even lower, with Manitoba sitting 14.9 cents lower.

"The start of 2017 left little doubt that 2017 would be the most expensive in at least three years," said Dan McTeague, GasBuddy senior petroleum analyst in a statement. "But resurgent U.S. share oil production and strong refinery runs have blunted any possible increases for now."

McTeague says the likelihood of getting a bad deal will rise, as the lower prices drop, the larger the gap is between stations. 

"Drivers can take some considerable comfort in the prospect of a summer driving season that could very well be the cheapest in seven years," McTeague finished.
