The price of crude oil continues to slide, but we're not feeling the full impact at the pump.
In August, the price of a barrel of Brent crude dropped to under $42 a barrel, the lowest price since the recession. On average, each barrel costs 47 percent less this year than it did over the same period last year, but the average cost of a gallon of gasoline is down only 29 percent.
In July and August, the spread between the cost of crude and the average cost of gasoline was over $1.50. On a week-by-week basis, the gap is the biggest it's been since the Energy Information Administration started gathering data in the 1990s.
