Georgia gas prices finally see a decline

By Caleb Hutchins Assistant News Director

After a month of gas prices rising across Georgia and the rest of the country, they finally trended downward in the past week.

The latest report from AAA Monday morning showed the average price for a gallon of regular in Georgia at $3.33. That's six cents lower than a week ago.

"Despite rising gas demand across the U.S. and recently elevated oil prices, the growth in total supply has helped to limit pump price increases." AAA Spokeswoman Montrae Waiters said in a release.

Prices are still much higher than earlier in the calendar year, however. The average price this time last month in Georgia was $2.82 per gallon.

Locally, prices are trending lower than the rest of the state. The average price for a gallon of regular in Hall County as of Monday morning was $3.24, almost a full 10 cents lower than the state average.

The cheapest prices in Northeast Georgia are in Stephens County at an average of $3.18 per gallon. The most expensive are in Franklin County at an average of $3.37.

The cheapest prices across the entire state are in Dougherty County in Southwest Georgia at an average of $3.13 per gallon. The mot expensive in the state are in Emanuel County in Southeast Georgia at an average of $3.57
