North Dakota motorists saw little change in the price of gas during the past week. Today, the average for a gallon of regular stands at $2.55, just three-tenths of a cent lower than one week ago. Meanwhile, the national average fell two cents to $2.59.
An increase in gasoline stocks is helping push gas prices cheaper, according to AAA. The trend is expected to continue throughout most of the month and perhaps through year’s end. With nearly 49.3 million Americans expected to travel by car for the holiday, gas prices may fluctuate, but over the past five years North Dakota’s statewide gas average has fallen an average of 12 cents in the two weeks leading up to the holiday. Between Thanksgiving Day and New Year’s Day the average fell an additional 20 cents.
Last year the national average price on Thanksgiving Day was $2.58. The North Dakota average was $2.59.
