Gas prices continue to fall

November 29th, 2014 by WCBC Radio

As an estimated 41.3 million Americans and 888,000 Marylanders hit the roads this week for the Thanksgiving holiday, motorists filled up their tanks paying the lowest gas prices for the holiday since 2009. With most travelers returning home today through Sunday, many will be paying lower gas prices than when they filled up their vehicle before their trip.  The nationwide average price for a gallon of gas today is $2.79 a gallon, which is five cents lower compared to a week ago, 24 cents drop from last month, and 49 cents decline versus the price at this time a year ago.  The national average has declined for 64 consecutive days.  Cumberland has dipped to $2.89 a gallon. Marylanders returning home will find the average price for gas at $2.82 per gallon, which is three cents less than last week, 17 cents a gallon less than a month ago and 60 cents less than last year on this date.
