Thanksgiving travelers are expected to be out in high numbers for reasons other than pumpkin pie.
Gas prices have dropped more than two dollars since Labor Day. Highway patrol says the lower gas prices will allow for more drivers on the road this holiday. Triple A told us the last time a gallon of gas was around 1.75 was back in January of 2005. After seeing a big dip at the pump, people say they can finally afford to visit family.
The average price for a gallon of gas in North Carolina last year on Thanksgiving was $3.03. This year the average is now $1.77.
