Gas Prices Dip Very Slightly in Elbert County from Last Week

February 5, 2014

Gas prices moved slightly lower last week and are now more than 20 cents less than they were this time last year.

Slow economic growth across the globe has curbed the oil rally and helped fuel prices move lower.

According to the government, US manufacturing fell to its lowest level in six months.

The national average for a gallon of regular, unleaded gasoline is $3.28, 1-cent less than last week.

Georgia’s average of $3.19 fell 2 cents from last week respectively.

Gas prices in Elbert County haven’t moved too much, down a penny from last week’s low price point of $3.17 to $3.16.

One month ago in Georgia, motorists were paying $3.24 a gallon for gasoline; the price a year ago at this time was $3.42 a gallon.
