Here’s something to be thankful for: The price of gas this Thanksgiving week is the lowest it’s been in seven years.

Gas currently costs an average of $2.20 per gallon, the lowest it’s been during the busy holiday travel week since 2008, when it cost an average of $1.95 a gallon, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

Prices peaked in 2012, when drivers forked over an average of $3.50 a gallon to get to their Thanksgiving dinners.

The decrease in gas prices comes as the number of travelers goes up for the seventh year in a row.
