Gas prices slightly rise, drivers still satisfied

Gas prices have actually gone up a little bit recently at some South Georgia stations, but experts say prices haven't bottomed out yet.

Gasbuddy.com predicts the national average will drop below $2.00 a gallon this week for the first time in almost 6 years. Gasbuddy thinks prices will continue to fall at least a few more weeks. A driver visiting Albany from Savannah told us tonight he's grateful for the low prices.

"We're pretty low in Savannah as well, about the same as Albany,” said Anthony Phillips. “It's great because it makes traveling a lot easier, a lot more convenient. You want to travel, let me say that. So it was a great trip for us. We're enjoying it."

Gasbuddy projects the average American driver will spend $750 less on gas this year than last year.
