Gas prices hit record high

July 12, 2005

Albany-- You're paying more to fill up your car than you ever have.

The national and state average gas prices reached record highs this week. According to Triple A, the national average for regular unleaded is $2.31 per gallon. The Georgia average is nearly 2.23. That's up about 18-cents in a month. Many drivers are frustrated by the rising prices.

"For a gallon of gas, you have to pay about 3 dollars for one gallon. That's too much," says driver Mack Frazier.

"I'm hoping that it will go down but I really don't see that happening. It just keeps rising," says driver Karen Richardson.

Those prices have risen significantly since last year when a gallon of gas in Georgia cost an average of $1.75.
