ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany's gas prices are the highest in the state, and no one can seem to explain why.

According to AAA's Daily Fuel Gauge Report, the average price for a gallon of gasoline in Albany is $3.90. That's seven cents more than the average price in Atlanta and 16 cents more than the average price per gallon in Columbus.

Elizabeth Marcus drives 23 miles to work and says when every penny counts, they're filling up where ever they find the best deal.

"I've been to Americus and it's ten cents cheaper than it is here and it is frustrating," said Marcus.

Valdosta's average per gallon is 14 cents cheaper than Albany. Late this afternoon some prices did fall, along Stuart Avenue gas could be found for $3.84.
