THE BRONX - The average gas price in the U.S. is at $1.91 per gallon today, marking the lowest it has been since 2009.

Compared to this day last year, the price for gas has dropped 17 cents.

Bronx residents say the money they save at the pump is going right to their savings.

"I have a daughter, I'm a single parent, so that helps me to take care of my daughter," said Bronx resident Elizabeth Hernandez.
