Tifton- It's been several months since Southwest Georgia drivers have seen gas prices like these, under two dollars.
"Little cheaper, it's about time," said Paul Harris of Tifton.
Surprising enough, you don't have to travel too far to find them, just to Tifton.
"We got a fuel shipment in on Friday and he just decided to lower gas prices yesterday," said Andrea Gilder, gas station manager.
That was from $1.92 to $1.89 and several stations followed. Station managers say, competition is helping along with traffic volumes along I-75.
"I know we're in competition with the two right down the road and we always try to stay right below them," said Gilder.
People from as far away as North Carolina say these prices are the cheapest they've seen and local residents agree. They hope the prices in Albany, where it's fallen ten cents in two weeks to 2.06, will continue to drop.
"I think it needs to fall a little more, because it's hard already," said Flossie McKinnie of Albany.
"I say Albany's way higher, and Dawson is way cheaper, Dawson gas is something like two dollars," said April Hilyard of Albany.
Many say they don't understand why it's cheaper in Tifton and why Albany remains so high and would like to see prices fall.
"Somewhere, around $1.79, $1.89 where it use to be," said Hilyard.
Georgia's Triple A says, the average price for a gallon of gas in the state is around $2.06.A month ago, the average price for a gallon of fuel in Georgia was close to the record high at $2.18. A year ago, that same gallon of gas cost just $1.82.
