Gas prices are down a bit before the big Thanksgiving travel push, but we are still paying a lot more for gas than we were at this time last year.
The Lundberg Survey says the national average price of gas is $2.65, which is a drop of 3.64 cents in the last two weeks. AAA says the average in North Carolina is a little lower than the national average, at $2.60. However, that's no bargain compared to gas prices at this time last year. You might remember when prices dropped dramatically in late October and November. The average price on this day in 2008 in North Carolina was $1.94.
