Georgia sees lower gas prices for holidays

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Record low gas prices made it more affordable for people to hit the road over the holidays and the prices continue to drop.

The lowest price for a gallon of unleaded in Georgia on Friday was $1.63 as reported by the consumer website, GasBuddy.

Gas prices in Georgia averaged one cent less on Friday than earlier in the week, at $1.98.

Motorists saved around $11 on a full tank of gas compared to this time last year, according to AAA.

Analysts expect gas prices to continue to slide for several reasons including the falling price of oil.
