As Americans prepare to hit the road for Thanksgiving, average gas prices will be at their highest seasonal level ever, according to AAA.

The national average is projected to stand at $3.68 on Thanksgiving, which is nearly 30¢ higher than last year. The national average for a gallon of gasoline slid three cents in the past week to $3.77, which is 13 cents less than a month ago and 36 cents more than a year ago.

South Carolina and Georgia are both in the nation’s top ten least expensive markets, with 3.29 the average in South Carolina and $3.16 the average in Georgia.
