The state’s average gas price is nearly $3.36 per gallon, which makes it the highest daily average price since September 2014, said a AAA report. In addition, the average cost to fill a 15-gallon tank this holiday will be $50, which is $13 more than pre-pandemic Thanksgiving prices, said the news release.

“High gas prices are not something drivers will be thankful for this Thanksgiving,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group, in a prepared statement. “The good news is gas prices should gradually decline through the holiday. Crude oil and gasoline futures dropped last week, and that should restore some downward pressure on prices at the pump.”

North Brevard’s highest price, as of Nov. 22, was $3.40 for a gallon of regular gas. The region’s highest price was $4 recorded in July 2008.

In addition, the number of American travelers with trips planned has risen to the highest level since the beginning of the pandemic, with 91% planning to travel sometime in the next six months, said Visit Orlando. That may spell good news for Central Florida, a top travel destination.

Further, only 25% of travelers say the pandemic would affect their travel plans greatly in the next six months, down from 36% who said that in September.
