ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Gas prices have only increased slightly over the past couple of days, but it's not stopping drivers from traveling the July 4th holiday weekend.
A law passed by the General Assembly went into effect earlier this week and sets Georgia's gas tax at 26 cents per gallon.
The previous tax per gallon was 19.5 cents.
While the average price recorded in South Carolina is at $2.42 per gallon, prices are a little higher in Georgia, averaging $2.66 per gallon.
The national average is $2.76 a gallon.
