Dec. 3: How gas prices have changed in the last week

GREENVILLE, NC (Stacker.com) – It’s been pretty easy to see that gas prices have fallen in North Carolina over the past week. The big question is how far and for how long.

Gasoline demand is falling somewhat, according to data from the Energy Information Administration showing that fewer people are filling up and supply is increasing, pushing prices down slightly. The national average price for regular gasoline fell to $3.42 per gallon this week from last, according to AAA.

Although prices are falling from record summer highs, they will remain high compared to last year’s prices, meaning Americans can expect the most expensive travel season in 10 years, according to a recent report by Gasbuddy.

Stacker compiled statistics on gas prices in North Carolina. Gas prices are as of December 1st. State gasoline tax data is from world population review. Connecticut and New York have temporarily suspended gasoline taxes to help consumers as the price of gasoline has risen.
