AAA Auto Club says that gas prices are remaining consistent across the nation, and that trend seems to be the same here in Chattooga County.

The national gas price average has held steady at $2.49 for nine straight days. Many motorists across the country are seeing more expensive gas prices at most six cents on the week, while prices are cheaper for a select few states.

“On average, gas prices are 12 cents more expensive than a year ago. However, on the week consumer demand for gasoline decreased. If this continues, gas prices will decrease in the weeks ahead,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson.

Locally the cheapest gas prices can be found at Murphy USA in Trion where gas was $2.22 a gallon as of Friday evening.  Gas was $2.36 at the Kangaroo on the Lyerly Highway and $2.37 at the Circle K on Commerce Street in Summerville, according to
