ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Gas prices soared across the nation overnight to prices that would be considered a deal here in Southwest Georgia.

According to the AAA, the average price of a gallon of regular rose more than six cents to $3.79. Most gas stations in Southwest Georgia are now over four dollars.

Governor Sonny Perdue signed an executive order allowing the state's price gouging statutes to go into effect. And sheriff's deputies are now recording those prices, and the previous price hikes for the Office of Consumer Affairs.

"It's obvious that the order is going to be coming after you see what is happening to Houston on the news. So many stations jumped their prices up in anticipation of the order. That will also be looked at," said Captain Craig Dodd with the Dougherty Sheriff Department.

If you think there's price gouging in your town , you can call the Governor's Office of Consumer Affairs at 404-651-8600 or 1-800-869-1123.
