Dig Baton Rouge

Gas prices drop as Thanksgiving approaches

Traveling for Thanksgiving is about to get a whole lot cheaper.

The national average Thanksgiving gas price should be the lowest in 11 years, according to a news release from Gasbuddy.com. That price is $2.11 per gallon.

“Over the Thanksgiving travel period, Wednesday, Nov. 23, to Sunday, Nov. 27, motorists will be collectively spending nearly $1.7 billion less at the gas pump than the five-year average,” said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst at GasBuddy in the release. “This year will go down as the first in over a decade that no state – not even traditionally pricey Hawaii or California – has seen its average daily price breach $3 per gallon. We can thank global oil production that continues to outpace rising demand for the low prices.”

The average gas price for Baton Rouge last Thanksgiving was around $1.82, according to Gasbuddy.
