ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Gas prices in Albany have fallen nearly 30 cents in the last week and more than a dollar 40 in the last month.

In Albany, motorists were excited to see prices as low as $2.88 at the Petro and Homerun Foods on West Oakridge this afternoon.

For motorists like Kendall Thornton who drives 61 miles one way from Ft. Gains to Albany State for class, the lower prices mean more money in his pocket.

"Considering everybody like me that's going back and forth and I've got a family back home so you've got to take care of that then you can do what you do on the road so it's a lot better," said Kendall Thornton, a motorist.

The nation's lowest prices are in Oklahoma where the average per gallon is $2.62. Savannah has the lowest average price per gallon in Georgia at $2.97.
