Gas Prices Continue to Rise

Hurricane season is bringing more than just destruction to US cities: it’s driving up gas prices across the United States. In Athens alone, gas prices are up $0.35 since last week. Compared to the average price of gas last year, prices are up $0.55.

Current average prices for regular gasoline are hovering around $2.71 in the Athens area. The record high in Athens of $4.13 for regular gas was set in 2008.

Atlanta gas prices have risen at a similar rate since this time last year, up $0.58 per gallon on average.

We will continue to track gas prices in the area.
