Rabun continues to see lowest gas prices in nearly two years

The latest Energy Information Administration (EIA) data registers gasoline demand at 8.6 million, the lowest level on record since February 2017.

Despite record motor vehicle travel for the holiday, demand was down suggesting that demand this winter could be lower than expected.

The average gas price in Rabun County is about $1.99/g and has declined for 12 weeks in a row. According to AAA, that trend may continue as prices are expected to continue to drop.

“As the global crude market continues to be oversupplied, oil prices are dropping, continuing last week’s trend,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson. “This is good news for motorists filling up at the pump.”
