Albany -- The Georgia average jumped three cents overnight and topped $3.70 for the first time.   According to Triple A, right here in Albany, you'll pay an average of $3.69 for regular unleaded. If you want premium, it'll cost you $4.14.  

Just a month ago, regular gas in Albany was 37 cents cheaper than it is today. Be glad you don't drive a big rig. Diesel is now a whopping $4.35 a gallon.

Department of Agriculture inspectors regular check the pumps to make sure they're properly calibrated so you'll get every drop you pay for.

If you find a problem at the pump, they encourage you to file a complaint with the Department of Agriculture.
