ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Gas prices have been creeping up, just in time for spring break and Easter weekend.
A spokesperson for AAA said refineries are moving from a winter blend of gasoline to summer blend.
And spring break season is underway, creating a higher demand for gas.
On Friday $2.57 was the state average, and in Dougherty County it is about two cents higher.
Gas prices across the state are up 18 cents from last month.
"There is a general trend through the spring and summer of those prices to fluctuate a little bit," explained Megan Osborne, a AAA Spokesperson "Just because after spring break we have summer break, the weather gets a little bit warmer so we see that demand for gasoline increase."
The national average is eight cents lower than Georgia's average.
