ALBANY, GA (WALB) - South Georgia drivers are getting a little relief at the pump. The price of regular gas is just under four dollars again.

The national average is now four dollars and seven cents. In this past year gas prices have gone up 35%.

In Albany the price is hovering between $3.98 and $3.99. But drivers we spoke to don't think this break will last for very long.

"I am glad that they are back under four dollars, but it's still high, and I don't think it will stay that way for very long. How long do you think they will stay this way? Probably only a couple of days," said Loretta Alexander.

Record high gas prices are causing Americans to change their driving habits by traveling less and saving money in other areas to be able to fill up their vehicles.
