Right before Thanksgiving, gas prices decline



North Dakota – Prior to Thanksgiving, gas prices are declining, which is good news for local drivers.

In North Dakota and Minnesota, the average price per gallon of gasoline during the past week decreased by 10 cents each, according to a news release.

The current averages range from $3.55 to $3.47. The national average also decreased by 11 cents to $3.66.

Drivers will pay the highest Thanksgiving gas price since AAA began keeping statistics in 2000, despite averages being the lowest in almost nine months.

Residents of North Dakota are in the top 10 states for credit scores.

“We can be thankful gas prices have fallen sharply since the record highs paid this past summer, but they still stand more than 30 cents higher than this time last year,” said Gene LaDoucer, regional director of public affairs for AAA. “Looking ahead, if oil prices continue to slide, we should see prices continue to slide toward the $3 level over the next several weeks.”
