It’s also the highest national average during Thanksgiving since 2000, when AAA first began tracking average gas prices in the US.

“Thank you [gas prices] AAA spokesman Andrew Gross said, “That would be about a dollar more per gallon than in pre-pandemic 2019. However, we can be thankful that gas prices are moving in the right direction right now.”
