The amount of gas used in the United States has dropped by 4.2 billion gallons since a year ago which is a 3 percent decline. Rising gas prices are one factor, the average price of a gallon of gas is up to $3.88, the highest ever for this time of year. But automakers are also making cars with better gas mileage.
