“What an incredible turnaround in the last week. While more states were expected to fall than last week, I didn’t expect every single state to jump on the bandwagon so quickly. But it’s great news as motorists prepare for Thanksgiving trips, with tens of thousands of gas stations below $3 a gallon and thousands more to come over the next few weeks unless there’s a dramatic turnaround.” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy.

“Everyone will see relief at the pump this week, with even sharper declines along the way, as oil prices plummeted last week and briefly traded below $80 a barrel.

It’s not impossible that if oil markets hold here for Christmas we could see a national average of $2.99, surely the gift every motorist is hoping for.

“Drivers shouldn’t be in a hurry to fill up as prices are set to drop almost coast to coast over the busy Thanksgiving holiday.”
