How gas prices have changed in Louisiana in the last week

Demand for gasoline is falling as Americans prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday – typically a time when many venture away from home to visit family and friends.

That's according to Energy Information Administration data showing that less people are filling up their tanks and more supply is coming online, pushing prices downward slightly. The national average price for regular gasoline is down to $3.72 per gallon this week compared with last, according to AAA.

Though prices are coming down from record-setting summer highs, they'll remain elevated over last year's prices meaning that Americans can expect the most expensive travel season in 10 years, according to a recent report from Gasbuddy.

Stacker compiled statistics on gas prices in Louisiana. Gas prices are as of November 23. The state gas tax data is from World Population Review. Connecticut and New York have temporarily suspended gas taxes to help consumers while the cost of gas has increased.
