Gas Prices in Georgia Are Up and Likely to Keep Rising

Atlanta, GA (AP) - Filling up at the pump costs more this week.

The average price of regular unleaded gas in Georgia has risen
11 cents in the past week to $2.83 per gallon. The national average
is up 7 cents to $2.93.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that a weak dollar is
pushing gas prices up and experts say the increases will likely
continue.

The AAA Auto Club says lower job growth than expected last month
weakened the dollar and made crude oil a more appealing commodity
to foreign investors.

A month ago, regular unleaded cost an average of $2.69 in
Georgia. A year ago, it was at $2.52, which is 31 cents below the
current price.

    Mr. President Obama should freeze gas prices like George Bush(the son) did when he was Mr. President.

    This will really help with holiday spending

    It's the usual raising of prices during the holidays so they can reap huge profits before the end of the year. It is either fly and get groped, or drive and get screwed.
