MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) -- Thousands of people are set to hit the road for one of the busiest travel days of the year and drivers are thankful this Thanksgiving -- as they experience savings at the pump.
A dramatic drop in oil prices over the last several weeks is fueling the decline. We decided to track the cheapest gas prices on both sides of the bay. Using the app Gas Buddy -- here's what we found.
Tillman's Corner: BP $2.29 per gallon.
Tillman's Corner: Murphy Express $2.22 per gallon.
Airport Boulevard: While most of the gas stations near I-65 hovered around $2.39 - $2.35 per gallon -- we found our lowest at $2.05 per gallon at the Budget Zone gas station at Airport and Azalea Road.
Across the bay in Baldwin County you can expect to pay a little more. At one gas station on the Eastern Shore the prices was 50 cents more per gallon than the cheapest we found in Mobile. The Marathon gas station in Spanish Fort $2.55 per gallon.
Shell gas station in Malbis $2.45 per gallon
Cefco gas station in Malbis $2.39 per gallon
Sam's Club gas station $2.33 per gallon.
Gas stations across the board are expected to be busy ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. We saw several trucks delivering fuel - making sure their supply meets the demand.
