How gas prices have changed in NC over the last week ^ North Carolina

GREENVILLE, NC (Stacker.com) – Demand for gasoline is falling as Americans prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday — typically a time when many venture away from home to visit family and friends.

Gas station chain Sheetz cuts prices to $1.99 for Thanksgiving week

That’s according to data from the Energy Information Administration, which shows fewer people are filling up and more supply is coming online, pushing prices down slightly. According to AAA, the national median price for regular gasoline fell to $3.72 a gallon this week compared to last.

Although prices are back from record-breaking summer highs, they will be above last year’s prices, meaning Americans can expect their most expensive travel season in 10 years, according to a recent report by Gasbuddy.
