  • Including the change in gas prices in Arkansas during the past week, prices
    yesterday were 5.6 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and
    are 32.7 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has
    decreased 26.4 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 6.5 cents
    per gallon higher than this day one year ago.
    "With Thanksgiving just days away, Americans will be hitting major
    thoroughfares en masse. While gasoline prices have dropped in the last month
    and a half, the national average will still come close to breaking a record-
    the highest ever national average for Thanksgiving," said GasBuddy.com
    Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "I don't really see how gas prices
    could greatly improve between now and Christmas, given the new military
    action in the Middle East, and other pressures. It's all but certain the
    national average will not drop under $3.25 per gallon, which could lead to a
    perilous start to 2013," DeHaan said.
