Little change in gas prices

There was little movement in gas prices in Georgia and Hall County over the past seven days.

AAA says the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded in Hall County is $3.00, down a penny from last Monday. The statewide average didn’t move at all – holding at $3.02. The national average is up a nickel to $3.14, likely caused by a combination of oil costs edging into the upper $70s per barrel and normal seasonal increases as winter eases and demand for gas creeps higher, according to a AAA spokesman.

“We are in that time of year where pump prices begin to heat up, usually peaking around July,” Andrew Gross added. “But unless something shocks the global oil market and causes prices to spike, the national average for a gallon of gas will probably stagger higher, with some flat days or even small price dips along the way.”
