Albany - A gallon of gas in Georgia is about $1.30 higher than it was this time last year. The change in price has had an effect on people's budgets and made some rethink their vacation plans.

One motorist says, "I do think about the trips I take a little more than I used to, we all need to do our part and try to conserve." Another adds, "I would go on vacation, everything else is going up, it's inevitable."

According to AAA, the average price for a gallon of gas in Georgia is three dollars and five cents. If you suspect a station of Gas Gouging, call the Georgia Gouging Hotline at 1-800-869-1123.

The Governor's office has also set up a website to report gouging. Note: The site is still under construction.
