Mainers and Americans will be hitting the road in mass this week as the holiday travel season kicks off. The good news is gas prices in Maine remained stable at $3.60 per gallon this week. That is 20 cents per gallon less than last month but 15 cents higher per gallon than last Thanksgiving.

The average gas price national is $3.43 per gallon. New Hampshire's average price per gallon is $3.51 and Massachusetts is at $3.61. Analysts do not expect gas prices to fall much lower between now and Christmas Day.
