ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The price of gas is going down, but the supply issues that have left many area stations with bags on their pumps could last another two weeks.
According to AAA, three refineries along the upper Texas Gulf Coast and Western Louisiana are still off line because they have no power. Others are in the process of re-starting, but it could be a week before they're back at full capacity.
In south Georgia, station owners say getting their regular shipments is still hit or miss. AAA believes it could be another two weeks before the supplies get back to normal.
"We may not see things back to normal until at least Columbus Day, on October 13th but I think this week I think you will see some improvement particularly in Metro Atlanta and some of the other northeast and north Georgia areas and the Carolinas that are being affected right now," said Randy Bly, AAA Auto Club South Community Relations Director.
AAA the national average price for a gallon of unleaded gasoline is $3.64. Georgia's average is nearly thirty cents higher at $3.93. Albany's average for a gallon of unleaded is a little better at $3.77.
