Gas prices stay in the ‘slow lane’ for now

The national average for a gallon of gas barely budged since last week, falling two cents to $3.07.  Price in Georgia and Hall County also dipped by only two cents a gallon for regular unleaded. The price in Hall County today is $2.92 vs. $2.94 last Monday, according to AAA South. The statewide average is $2.95 compared to last Monday’s $2.97.

AAA says the primary reason for the small declines in prices appears to be “rather humdrum numbers” for the cost of oil and gasoline demand.

“I wouldn’t bet the farm on the national average reaching $3 a gallon, even if we are tantalizingly close,” said spokesman Andrew Gross. “The mid-winter blahs will likely keep pump prices waffling a few cents up and down for the immediate future. But keep an eye on frigid temps because those can affect refinery production, pushing some regional pump prices higher.”
