TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Travelers can expect to see low gas prices during this Thanksgiving holiday, according to AAA.
As of November 20, the national gas price average is $2.61. Mississippi's average is $2.36. Alabama’s average is $2.35.
In fact, Mississippi and Alabama are categorized among the least expensive markets.
"The nearly 49 million Americans hitting the road for Thanksgiving will find pump prices similar to last year,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson. “When it comes time to fill-up during the trip, motorists should keep in mind that gas stations along highly traveled routes may find prices more expensive than in-town.”
AAA shows gas prices start to increase the further west you head, such as Utah, Nevada and California.
