Cheap-o Gas Prices in Athens, Ga.--How Low Can it Go?

Apparently, even lower than it is now!


Your eyes haven't been deceiving you: the price of gasoline continues to fall. Today, it hit a six-month low, according to the AAA. A year ago, the average price, nationally, of a gallon of regular gas was $3.55, compared to $3.36 today.

In Georgia, the average cost of a gallon of regular unleded gas is $3.14 a gallon. To the east, South Carolina has seen gas prices drop to $2.95 a gallon

In Athens, Murphy Express Gas at Lexington Highway and Whit Davis is selling regular unleaded at $3.11 a gallon, the lowest in the area.

Despite the drop at the pump, people aren't driving more, according to the Associated Press. Though gas is 18 cents cheaper, people are buying about 5 percent less of it.
