Gas prices continue to fall by about half a cent a day, even though oil prices inched up last week.

According to Triple A, the national average is significantly below the $2 a gallon mark at $1.80.

In Nashville, those numbers are much lower (image courtesy of Triple A).

Officials with the Commerce Department said consumer spending fell flat in December despite an increase in savings.
