Gas prices have fallen nearly 14-cents over the last two weeks, to a national average of $2.16 per gallon and in Colorado Springs they have dropped even lower.

"I can't believe it," said one driver.

Most drivers are almost in shock over prices this low. In Woodland Park, the price of gas has dropped below 2-dollars. It’s now $1.86 at this Western Station.

"It's been a long time since I've filled up for around 20-dollars," said another driver.

Experts say the drop in gas prices is due largely to a recent decrease in crude oil prices. And it’s a welcome change for drivers, the last time statewide gas prices were below $2 a gallon was is 2005.

Experts say it isn't likely that gas prices will get too much lower. While they haven't bottomed out quite yet, we probably won't see another drop this big.
