Low gas prices cause increase in deadly car accidents

Lower gas prices have led to a rise in deadly car accidents, according to the National Highway Safety Administration.

Lower prices at the pump mean more people are driving, and therefore, getting into more accidents.

About 35,000 people died on roads in the U.S. last year, the highest number since 2008.
