Gas Prices Up From Last Thanksgiving

As the winter weather persists in the area, more people will be venturing out onto the roads for holiday travel. AAA reports that 55 million Americans will be traveling – 49 million by car – making this the second-highest Thanksgiving travel volume since records started being tracked in 2000.

AAA expects gas prices to be just a few cents higher than during last year’s Thanksgiving weekend average. The current National average is $2.59 a gallon. The state average is well above that at $3.83 a gallon. Mendocino County is averaging $3.66 a gallon, Lake County’s average is $3.78 a gallon.
