The national average price of regular unleaded gasoline is 4 cents less than last week at $3.44. Florida’s average price dropped 6 cents this week, falling to $3.37.

While gas prices continue to decline, the cost for a barrel of oil has increased slightly. A barrel of oil cost $86.07 Friday, an increase of $1.21 from the week before.

"Although oil prices inched up slightly, retail gas prices are expected to fall throughout the month," said Jessica Brady, AAA spokeswoman, The Auto Club Group. "Pump prices continue to look more attractive to travelers who plan to take a Thanksgiving road trip this year."
