Albany-  Gas prices in south Georgia made another jump Monday, breaking the four dollar mark for the first time at some stations.

According to AAA, the average price of regular unleaded in Albany is now $3.98 per gallon, but we found it as $4.09 at the Chevron on Gillionville Road. Motorists say at four dollars they're cutting back on how many places they go, and they're simply not filling the tank.

"No, I'm not filling up anymore because it cost too much to fill up. I just put enough gas in this vehicle to get around," said motorist Marie King.

The national average for a gallon of gas is now $4.02. Drivers are paying the most in California at more than $4.43 a gallon. Missouri has the cheapest gas at $3.80 a gallon.
