National Gas Prices Take a Dip
With the snowflakes falling and the holiday season right around the corner, we are seeing an upside to the economy. Gas prices have dipped to a national average of $1.978 for a gallon of self-serve unleaded gasoline according to AAA. This is the first time since March of 2005 that we have seemed the gas prices drop below $2.00.
We are currently seeing our gas prices at $2.05 in the Deep Creek Lake area, which is not too bad for a resort area. Locals are enjoying the cheaper gas prices and lower fuel costs for their homes, while our guests to the area are enjoying a more affordable travel for their holiday season.
Deep Creek Lake received their first big snowfall Monday and Tuesday of this week, accumulating about 6 inches. With more snow in the forecast, Wisp has been blowing snow all through the nights. Wisp has one of the world’s largest most energy-efficient snowmaking systems with computerized weather and pumping stations that are world-renowned for their efficiency! Locals, vacationers, and day trippers will be able to enjoy the 132 acre ski terrain over the Thanksgiving holiday. Not a skier or snowboarder? There are a number of activities for you to enjoy. Try horse drawn sleigh rides, snow mobile tours, mountain coaster rides, cross country skiing, dog sled tours, spas, shopping, and plenty of dining options to please anyone’s palette.
