MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - A lot of drivers in south Georgia said lower gas prices are a nice change after recent spikes.

AAA reported that gas prices in Georgia are letting up now that the Colonial Pipeline is working again.

During a 12 day shutdown following a leak, the average price in Georgia surged nearly 30 cents a gallon.

Now that supply is stabilizing, prices are doing down.

At the RaceWay on Veterans Parkway in Moultrie, gas was down to $2.09 Monday.

"All kinds of prices.  But they were as much as $2.35.  There were some $2.29, there were some $2.19, but I never saw any this cheap," said Moultrie resident Joyce Smith.

A AAA spokesman said gas prices should completely return to normal levels in the next couple of weeks.
