KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Wednesday marks one of the busiest travel days of the year.

Millions of people will be traveling to be with loved ones and with lower gas prices, experts predict even more people will be out on the roads.

Gas Buddy expects that Thanksgiving will have the lowest gas prices since 2009. In some places gas was as low as $1.65.

Nationally, the average price for a gall of regular gas is $2.06, but that is expected to drop to $1.99 by Thanksgiving.

AAA says they expect drivers to save more than $10 every time they fill up with gas.

Mother Heidi Miller says she budgeted for gas prices to be high so saving money was an added bonus.

“We drive because it is easier for us with three children and all of our stuff,” Miller told FOX 4.
