Despite its recent rise, a gallon of regular gas is still $1.06 cheaper today than it was a year ago, according to AAA. That's led prices for used electric vehicles to plunge, The Wall Street Journal reports.
How much? Try more than $2,000. That's the difference in average listing prices between a 3-year-old Nissan Leaf on Cars.com in January 2015 versus a 3-year-old Leaf in January 2014. Last month, the average 2012 Nissan Leaf listed for just $15,575 — a $2,226 drop compared to the average listing price for a 2011 Leaf in January 2014, which was $17,801.
The drop reflects a rough stretch for EV resale value, but it's great news if you're shopping for a used plug-in car.
