Thomasville - Regular gasoline has reached up to $1.89 at some stations in the Rose City, with premium gas reaching $2.05.

The increase in price has drivers like Amber Ridgeway thinking about alternate methods of transportation. She says, "My co-workers and I are talking about carpooling, so it's just ridiculous. I mean it's saving gas, saving money."

The national price of regular gasoline is now at $1.95. The average in Georgia is $1.82, up two cents from Wednesday.

A gas station in Moultrie has come up with a clever way to get a laugh out of rising gas prices. The Patio on South Main Street took down numbers on their sign and added words.

For unleaded, it costs an arm and for diesel the cost is a leg. "Actually it was my brother's idea, just trying to put a little humor into the situation that gas is going up daily, affecting every business,” said Owner Ponda Clark.

Brothers Ponda and Pax Clark plan to put the prices back up Friday. They're the third generation to own a gas station on this property. The newest store opened in December but will have a grand opening in June.
