ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The gasoline pump continues to take more of your disposable income, with prices climbing nine cents in the last week.

Georgia gas prices are now at the highest levels since Hurricane Harvey, with the average price per gallon for regular grade gas at $2.83.

The average price of gas in Albany is $2.59, the highest level since June of 2015.

According to industry analyst Trilby Lundberg blames the rising cost of crude oil for the higher gas prices.

However, the price spike may be coming to an end.

As the shift to higher- cost summer grade gasoline is almost complete.

Georgia doesn't seem to be one of the states that will see gas rise to $3, but the prices will seem high for a few more weeks.
