BROOK PARK, Ohio -- 2014 has come and gone, but the price at the pump hasn't changed. It's still under two bucks, and that's good news for drivers.

"I think it's great. It helps out the economy a lot and you get more for your buck, ya know?" said Bill Quisenberry.

He was filling up at the Shell Gas Station in Brook Park. Gas there was $1.89. That's comparable to others around the area.

"It's no more pain at the pump," he joked.

But will that pain we all know so well return? According to AAA, it's not likely. They're predicting relatively low gas prices for 2015.


The national average may remain less than $3.00 a gallon. That could change though depending on the cost of crude oil this year.

"The prices have dropped dramatically. It's unbelievable," said William Prymas, lease dealer for the Shell Gas Station in Brook Park.

He said cheaper fuel means more customers.

While the forecast looks promising overall, there are still some concerns. AAA says gas prices could go up as the spring refinery maintenance season begins. Same with summer when more people are expected to travel.
