Average gas prices drop a bit in Georgia
By Derreck Booth Editor
TAMPA, FLA - Monday morning's Fuel Price Brief from AAA shows a slight decline in average gas prices in the southeast and across the country since a week ago.
In Georgia the drop was three cents a gallon, going from $3.56 to $3.59. Tennessee's average for regular unleaded dropped a penny. Florida's average declined two cents over the week and the national average dropped the same amount.
"Gas prices in the southeast are falling at about the same rate as they did during June 2013. However, the discount at the pump could end anytime. The summer months tend to be more volatile with increased demand, geopolitical tensions and the potential for hurricanes," Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group said.
While crude oil and gasoline prices have been volatile across the country, in the past couple of weeks, prices in most states have fluctuated slightly, while motorists in the southeast have seen slow and steady declines, according to AAA.
