Charlotte, NC -- AAA Carolinas thinks a $0.16 drop in gas prices and a forecast of pleasant weather could lead motorists to do some traveling during the Easter weekend.

Since peaking at $3.80 on Feb. 22, the average cost of a gallon of gas in North Carolina has fallen to $3.64.
This year, the increase occurred earlier than usual, rising 58 cents from $3.22 on Dec. 20 to $3.80 on Feb. 22, before trending back downward.

The Fayetteville area has the highest-priced gasoline in North Carolina at $3.68. The least expensive gas in the state is in High Point at $3.56.

Although the Easter holiday isn't traditionally a heavy travel weekend, many North Carolina schools are on spring break, which increases traffic congestion and demand for gas.
