ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Southwest Georgia is starting to see a little relief at the pump after an increase in gas prices following the Colonial Pipeline explosion.

AAA said the average price in Georgia dropped a little less than a penny from yesterday.

The company restarted the pipeline Sunday.

The deadly explosion a week and a half ago threatened the fuel supply in our region.

Until the supply is fully restored, Governor Nathan Deal declared an emergency to prevent price gouging.

"Sometimes prices do fluctuate based on a lower supply and that's understandable but to take advantage unduly that's when it become price gouging, hopefully we will not see any example of that," said Deal.

Governor Deal expects the fuel supply to stabilize soon.
