ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Gas prices are up about 10¢ a gallon in the last week. It'll now cost you about $2.48 in Albany.   Many motorists have noticed the spike.  

Albany's price is close to the state average, while in Columbus and Augusta, gas is about ten cents per gallon cheaper.

Those who have been traveling this summer say Albany's prices are better than neighboring states. 

"Compared to Florida, because I just got back from Orlando yesterday and their prices were mighty higher than these," said motorist Leonard Cook.

Cook said he paid $2.60 a gallon in Orlando. The highest price per gallon in the continental U.S. is in California where a gallon of unleaded gas is $2.92.
