The auto club says the price of gasoline is likely to be significantly higher than the 2010 holiday.

The Triple-A says the national average price of gasoline is 58 cents higher than one year ago, and it forecasts a price of about $3.40 per gallon when Thanksgiving rolls around.

The cost of a gallon of gas last Thanksgiving was $2.87 a gallon nationally.

In Virginia, the fuel averages are a bit lower than the national average. The average price of a gallon last week was $3.29 in the state. That's still a half-buck more than last year.
