Gas prices

If you are hitting the road for the holidays, you may want to wait a few hours before filling your gas tank. Experts do expect prices to keep on falling during the holiday season, from the transition to cheaper winter blend gas.

If you are planning to take a trip this weekend there are a few stops that might be cheaper than others. Driving North, you will pay about $3.15 per gallon once you hit Ashland, Oregon. If you are going South, gas averages about $3.30 per gallon in Modesto.

If you are going to Reno for the holiday, gas prices are even cheaper. In Reno, they average about $3.10 per gallon.
