Gas Prices Set to Continue to Rise
Although earlier in December, gas prices in this area were declining, they are currently on the rise.
The current average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in the city of Clayton is $3.20, which lines up with the current statewide average of $3.21. One week ago, the average price of gasoline statewide was $3.14.
Mark Jenkins, spokesperson with Triple-A, said that trend will continue for the time being.
“Just in the past week, we’ve seen Georgia gas prices go up six cents, and right now, we’re looking at gas prices likely to continue to increase into mid January before we see them start to retreat.”
Nationwide, the current average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $3.26.
