Lower gas prices good for businesses

September 2, 2003

Adel - Gas prices are slowly going back down, which is good news for businesses that deliver. 

Gas prices have dropped five to ten cents since last week. Businesses like "Sisters Florist and Bakery" in downtown Adel have increased flower and cake prices to meet the expensive gas demand.

Co-owner Sonya Powell says in their five years of doing business they've never seen gas prices as high as they've seen this summer. She says, "Around $1.65 and we've had to go up on our delivery prices a little."

The Adel shop has to deliver as far as Valdosta and Tifton. On Monday, gas prices ranged between $1.42 to $1.50.
