In 15 states, the average cost of a regular gallon of gas is now under $3, according to GasBuddy analyst Patrick DeHaan.

“47.4% of all stations [tracked by GasBuddy] are under $3 a gallon,” DeHaan said. GasBuddy pulls data from 133,000 stations in the U.S.

And the savings are adding up. DeHaan said Americans are spending around $980 million less per day on gas than last year at this time. And compared to two years earlier – when gas prices were even higher – they’re saving $2.2 billion a day.

If you’re looking for the lowest gas prices, though, you’ll need to head south. Here’s a look at the states with the lowest gas prices in the U.S., as of Thursday:
