Tifton--The average price for regular unleaded gas in Georgia right now is $2.66 a gallon. It's a little higher than that at many stations in our area, but Interstate travelers tell us Georgia prices aren't as bad as some states.
On her way through Georgia from Florida, Cathy Dewitt said "In Gainesville, they are pretty high. They always keep them kind of high for the college students which is why we waited until we got to Tifton so we could get gas a little bit cheaper."
The national average right now is $2.79 a gallon. The Energy Information Administration predicts prices will level off at about $2.81 for most of the summer travel season. Late last summer, prices got up to $3.00 a gallon.
