Albany -- The average price around here is $2.43 per gallon of unleaded. It was this week last year when south Georgian's started paying more than $2.00 for a gallon of gas.
That was considered a big price to pay back then, but after highs and lows of prices this past year many say that's pretty cheap.
"Nowdays if you can find gas for $2.09 or $2.10, you've found yourself a deal," said driver Michael McCalla.
"I'd be satisfied with that right now, $2.00," said Jimmy Payne.
Jimmy Payne isn't exactly pumped when it comes to watching his truck fill up, especially when he remembers gas prices a few years ago.
"$1.57 I think it was, two years ago," remembered Payne.
It's been one year now this week since South Georgians have been paying more than $2.00 for a gallon of gas, and many can't wait to see the price trickle back down.
"I would love for it to go back down to when I first started driving and it was $1.45," said Joanna Neel.
That was just three years ago for Joanna Neel, and after watching prices fluctuate this year...
"I don't think that will ever happen again," said Neel.
Some are so used to paying the price it would just leave them wondering what to do if gas prices went down.
"I don't know. I really don't know what my reaction would be," said Nicole Hughes.
For Nicole Hughes a smaller car has eased some of her gas price pain, but for others if the price goes up again...
"Paying $3, $4, $5 a gallon is just out of our budget. We'll have to resort to riding bicycles," said Vincent Raven.
Vincent Raven hopes prices remain at bay so his ride will be on four wheels, not two.
