Prices in Georgia and Tennessee have fallen 34 and 32 consecutive days respectively.<br /> <br /> "Oil prices briefly rose following the crash of Malaysian Airliner Flight MH17, but gas prices didn't skip a beat last week," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "Motorists continue to enjoy discounts at the pump and that's likely to continue this week."<br /> <br /> The price of oil fell more than a dollar on the NYMEX this week. WTI settled at $102.09 a barrel Friday, $1.04 cheaper than the week prior.

The average price also fell 5 cents in Florida, Georgia and Tennessee.<br /> <br /> The average price nationally is $3.52 a gallon; Georgia's average price is $3.43 a gallon.<br /> <br /> <br />
