Albany-  For the second week in a row, south Georgians saw gas prices continue to rise.  After falling below two dollars just weeks ago, the price for a gallon of gasoline in Georgia is averaging around $2.08.

We found prices in Albany as low as $2.08 at Woodalls on Slappey and as high as $2.14 at the Chevron on Slappey. Motorists say it's hard to budget what they'll need for gas with yo-yoing prices. 

"They're up and down all the time, so you have to try and get gas while they're down," said Vanessa Gibson, Motorist. 

"I think it's terrible, I think they should come down and stay down with it," said Debbie Hesson, a Motorist. 

The good news is prices still remain lower than this time last month when they averaged $2.14 and they're a lot lower than a year ago, when the average price in Georgia for a gallon of regular gasoline was $2.20.
