Arizonans to spend about $80 on gas this weekend
PHOENIX — Triple-A officials estimate that Arizonans will spend about $80 on gasoline this Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
And although prices at the pump have dropped an average of 25 cents statewide over the last month, Triple-A says the cost to fill a 15-gallon tank will cost motorists almost $52 this weekend.
That compares to $49 last Thanksgiving weekend, nearly $42 in 2010, $39 in 2009 and less than $30 in 2008 for 15 gallons of gas.
Triple-A officials estimate that Arizonans will spend an average of $569 over the Thanksgiving weekend with 14 percent of that amount going to buying gasoline.
