2015 gas prices could average $2.64, lowest since 2009

In its annual outlook, price tracker GasBuddy.com. forecasts 2015 gas prices to average $2.64 a gallon. That's 70 cents below 2014's $3.34 average and nearly $1 a gallon below 2012's all-time record of $3.60.

Pivotal moments in 2014: when mobile overtook desktop
Tnooz
Forty percent. The number was embedded in an Expedia-Comscore workshop presented at PhocusWright, alongside lots of other data, and it got lost in the maelstrom. No one noticed. But it was right there: 40 percent of visitors to U.S. travel sites are seen as mobile only. Yes, ONLY. Compare this to 33 percent desktop only, and 27 percent using both devices.
