gas prices 6Gas prices continue to fall throughout the nation. Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group says, Gas prices fell below $2 a gallon at various filling stations in Georgia and Tennessee last week.
“Gasoline prices are plunging with little sign of slowing down,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Oil prices dropped for the fourth consecutive week because of increased oil production and low demand, and that’s keeping downward pressure on the price of gasoline. It is unclear exactly how low prices will go, but gasoline will keep getting cheaper as long as oil does.”
