(Washington, DC)    Triple A says gas prices will fall another 30 cents by the time Thanksgiving arrives.

The agency says there are a number of reasons for the expected decline.

People start driving less when the summer ends which brings down the demand for gas.

And refineries start to make a cheaper blend of gas for winter months.

Right now the national average for a gallon of gas is nearly $3.70.

In the Memphis-Metro area you can find gas below $3.40 a gallon.
