Gas prices drop in time for Thanksgiving holiday

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A survey says the average price of a gallon of gasoline in the United States has dropped nearly five cents over the past two weeks. The Lundberg Survey of fuel prices released Sunday puts the price of a gallon of regular at $3.38.

Many stations in the Tri-State are selling it for much cheaper. Regular unleaded was $3.06 Sunday at the UDF on the corner of Dale Road and Carthage in Norwood, and $3.09 at the Speedway at North Bend Road and West Fork in Monfort Heights.

"Right now its looking good. I mean it helps with the wallet but at the same time I look at tomorrow and there ain't no telling what the gas prices will be," said Anthony Rice who was filling up at the Speedway. "If it stays about this hear we'll be looking okay for the holidays just to help the people out with the economy. But, at the same time, you never know. We don't know."

According to cincygasprices.com, the cheapest gas around is going for $3.04 a gallon on North Verity Parkway in Middletown. On the other side of the pump, Blue Ash and Kenwood are two areas that have the most expensive gas around with the highest of $3.59 a gallon found at the Marathon on Carmargo Road in Madeira.
