Gas Prices in Atlanta Still Dropping
It appears there is one last gift under the tree here in Atlanta; local gasoline prices continue to fall.
GasBuddy.com reports that this week’s average has price in the Atlanta area was $3.14 per gallon for regular unleaded. That is down a half-cent from the week before 11.5 cents per gallon lower than a month ago.
Meanwhile, the national average price is a dime higher at $3.24 per gallon. That could set a new all-time record high for the period according to GasBuddy petroleum analyst Patrick DeHaan.
But DeHaan says, for all of us, any kind of holiday is probably over at the pumps. Historically, gas prices have risen between Christmas Day and January 15; it has happened six out of the last seven years.
