Be Thankful for (Relatively) Lower Gas Prices

22. November 2012

However, those lower prices are a relative thing, because GasBuddy.com has calculated that the national average for gas will be the highest ever this Thanksgiving.

According to Patrick DeHaan, another senior petroleum analyst, national gas prices will be about a dime a gallon higher than in 2011, at $3.43 per gallon.

In Detroit, there is a bigger price difference: an average $3.49 per gallon compared with $3.21 per gallon last Thanksgiving.

Well, at least Detroiters can take solace in the (relatively) better performance of the Lions.
