Like holiday decorations, gas prices are coming down

Gasoline prices continued their downward trend in Georgia, in Gainesville and around the country during the week after the holidays, according to AAA.

Gainesville prices are down another three cents a gallon today at $2.93 for regular unleaded. The statewide average declined another two cents to $2.97. And the national average is $3.07, three cents less than last Monday.

One reason could be lower demand, according to a AAA spokesman, as fewer people are fueling up after the peak of holiday road travel. 

“January is a bit of blah time of year, and gas prices are in the doldrums as well,” said Andrew Gross. “Barring some unexpected shock to the global oil market, gas prices will likely shuffle up and down a few cents for a while.”
