Albany -- Once again, we're paying more for gas during a holiday travel period.  

The national average is up about a dime over last Christmas.   According to AAA,  Tuesday's national average for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $2.30.

The average retail gasoline price peaked at $3.05 a gallon in September 2005 after hurricanes Katrina and Rita. They remained high all year and surpassed three dollars again this summer.  

"It's pretty good here, $2.18," said Bill Oliver of Tampa, Florida. "We got as high as $3.22 a gallon in Florida last year."  

Prices fell in late summer and early fall, but started rising again a month or so ago.

The average gas price in Georgia right now is $2.20 per gallon.
