GasBuddy, the site that tracks the fuel and transportation industry, wrote a wrap-up blog on gas prices for 2013.

Overall, gas prices were lower last year than in 2012 and 2011, according to GasBuddy. Here’s what they said about prices at the pump in 2013:

The national average for 2013 came to $3.491 gal. This is 13.5cts gal lower than 2012’s national average of $3.626 gal and 3.7cts gal lower than 2011’s national average of $3.528 gal.

November was a volatile month as the year’s biggest spike and biggest drop in gas prices happened that month.
