Lower gas prices and air fares are good news for the Coachella Valley tourism industry and its residents. On Thanksgiving, AAA announced that gas prices had fallen for 10 weeks in a row to a nationwide average of $3.29 a gallon, on track to the lowest average since 2010. Prices edged up a bit this week. Inland Empire drivers paid an average $3.59 a gallon for regular unleaded gas, up 2 cents from last week.
