Gas prices down a bit

Gasoline prices are down a little in Georgia and Gainesville from a week ago.

Monday morning, the average for regular unleaded in Gainesville was $3.61 a gallon compared to $3.64 last Monday. Statewide, the price stood at $3.65, a two cents drop. Meanwhile, the national average was at $3.85, according to AAA.

A spokesman says prices are relatively stable nationwide despite an uptick in demand and rising oil prices that are approaching the mid-$80s per barrel.
