U.S. gasoline prices have fallen to their lowest levels since 2010, dropping to $2.84 a gallon. That's according to a Lundberg survey across 2,500 filling stations. Gas prices have dropped 10 cents in the last two weeks and are 41 cents lower than this time last year.The drop comes as U.S. drillers produce the biggest glut in crude oil for more than three decades. U.S. oil production has increased 62% in the last 5 years. The lowest price per gallon was in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where residents saw prices slump to an average of $2.47 per gallon. Crude oil prices have fallen 29 percent since peaking in June this year. The U.S. is currently producing around 9 million barrels per day.
