    Good news if you're getting ready to drive to a Thanksgiving destination this week.

    Brand new numbers in Monday morning show gas prices are down.

    Analysts say weak economic conditions and fewer daylight hours have contributed to the drop.

    AAA says overnight, prices in the District dropped a penny to an average $3.53 a gallon.
     
    In Maryland, prices remain at $3.31.

    Virginia drivers are paying about $3.25 a gallon.
