Nation wide gas prices have held at their highest price of the year with the national average last week at $2.66 per gallon.

“Gas prices are only a penny away from topping the $2.67 high of 2017,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson. “The price is likely to increase as spring brings warmer weather and the switchover to summer blend gasoline, but hopefully we will only see mild jumps in coming weeks.”

Georgia drivers saw an average decrease of only one cent per gallon last week, according to AAA.  According to Gasbuddy.com , prices in Chattooga County were anywhere from $2.49 per gallon to $2.64 per gallon.  In neighboring Cherokee County, Alabama, gas was quite a bit cheaper, ranging from $2.39 to $2.42 per gallon.  Gas prices in Floyd County were ranging higher than Chattooga County with the price for a gallon of gas between $2.49 and $2.89 per gallon.
