Gas prices decreasing in Georgia

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) The average gas price in Georgia has decreased more than 30 cents over the past month. 

AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins told WXIA-TV that, ``Motorists have enjoyed a monthlong plunge at the pump after prices skyrocketed because of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.'' Gas prices in the state averaged $2.44 per gallon on Sunday after decreasing 8 cents during the past week. 

The largest declines were 11 cents in Macon, 10 cents in Columbus and 9 cents in Dalton. 

The most expensive averages are $2.48 in both Savannah and Athens, and $2.47 in Atlanta. The least expensive averages are $2.31 in Albany, $2.36 in Valdosta and $2.37 in Augusta. 

Despite the decrease, Georgia's average gas price is still more than it was this time last year.
