Gas Prices Continue Post Labor Day Weekend Descent

September 12, 2013

Oil prices inched up while debate over a possible U.S. air strike on Syria continued.

Still, gas prices are beginning their usual decent following the Labor Day weekend.

“With summer travel now in the review for many motorists, retail gas prices are likely to continue moving lower through the fall due to plentiful supplies, weaker demand, and the switch to winter blend fuel production in mid-September”, said AAA’s Manager of Regulatory Affairs Avery Ash

In his weekly fuel gage report, he said he feels that motorists may not quite be out of the woods yet.

“The possibility does remain that escalating violence in the Middle East, hurricanes, or other supply disruptions could cause prices to escalate in the coming months”, said Ash.

The national average price of regular unleaded gasoline is $3.57, two cents less than last week.

Georgia’s average of $3.49 dropped four cents from last week respectively.

In Elbert County, the low retail price is down nearly eight cents from last week’s mark of $3.24 down to $3.16.
