ALBANY, GA (WALB) - They're not as low as we would want them to be, but gas prices under $2.50 a gallon is a sigh of relief for many drivers.

Crude oil prices closed Friday, $3 per barrel higher than the week before, but ample fuel supply and weak demand should keep retail gasoline prices edging lower.

Drivers at the pump Saturday told us they can do more now that prices are more manageable.

"I'm traveling more I feel I can go to Wild Adventures, do more things with my kids, she's on a traveling soccer team $2.27 this is pretty comfortable and it's steadily dropping I'm feeling good about that," Erica Jackson, Albany.

Out of the state's eight metro areas, Valdosta and Albany tie for the second lowest average per gallon at $2.31.

Augusta's average is three cents lower at $2.28.
