“Last week, as millions of Americans took to the streets for Thanksgiving, we saw gasoline prices continue to fall coast to coast, setting a new record for the largest single-day drop on the national average. In addition, 47 of the country’s 50 states also saw diesel prices fall, providing some much-needed relief ahead of the holiday and helping to stem the rise in inflation,” said Patrick De Haan, GasBuddy’s head of petroleum analysis.

“All metrics are looking very positive for motorists as this week is likely to see further falling fuel prices, with many areas falling to their lowest levels since the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February.

“It’s entirely possible that the national average price of gasoline will fall below $3 a gallon by Christmas, which would be a huge boon to motorists after a dizzying year at the pump.”
