"The drop in gas prices certainly has been well noted- in some instances people have been calling this a gas price crash. Dub it whatever you like, but I'll remind motorists: gasoline prices in some areas still could set all-time record highs for Christmas Day. While it is excellent that gasoline prices have dropped, I'm not on board with this being called a gas price crash. Call me a grinch, call me a realist, but at the end of the day, data doesn't lie- and that data shows that gasoline prices are still clinging near all-time highs for today's date," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan
