Here's some good news for the millions planning to hit the roads this Thanksgiving: Gas prices are at the lowest they've been in a while.

After reaching a four-year high last month, the pinch at the pump has plummeted, dropping 21 cents a gallon.

The latest figures from AAA show gas is averaging $2.654, which is still a few cents higher than last year's $2.562.

Even better news for those in Ohio and Texas: GasBuddy says that some stations list a gallon of regular for under $2.
