Average retail gasoline prices in Georgia have fallen 3.4 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.39/g yesterday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 5,883 gas outlets in Georgia. This compares with the national average that has fallen 1.5 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.49/g, according to gasoline price websiteGasBuddy.com
Including the change in gas prices in Georgia during the past week, prices yesterday were 8.4 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 18.1 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 16.4 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 12.3 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. 


"Beginning the month with the lowest pump prices since 2010 is a nice way to start August, but it's unlikely that we'll see gasoline production from coast to coast running as high in August as we'd seen during July," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Gregg Laskoski.

"In recent years we've seen August refinery utilization slip a bit below July numbers and if that happens we may see prices increase especially in areas where consumers are flocking to enjoy the remainder of the summer driving season," he added.

It's Obama's fault. Has to be if he gets blamed when he has nothing to do about the price of gas raising, he must also be at "fault" when they fall right?

Does it ever occur to you that you sound like a whiny, petulant @$$hole with this kind of stuff? And to think you're trying to run for office. Can't wait until November .... Should be about 90% to 10% Jasperse. Of course, against you, pretty much anyone could win.

@ Skip - Really? Who sounds like a petulant ass? You mean the Anti-Obama sock puppets don't you? People like you. If Obama said he lifted his left cheek to pass gas, you would immediately declare he was doing it wrong, he has to lift the right cheek. I am not TRYING to run for office, I am running for office. You do not like the tables turned back at you? Then perhaps you should pay closer attention and turn the channel from Faux News. Try to keep up if possible. I can't wait for November either. I think a lot of people (you obviously are not included in this group) are smart enough to be able to grasp the incumbent is looking out for his political career but hasn't done spit for this district when it comes to legislation. His idea of legislating is trying to nullify federal laws, circumvent federal laws, relinquishing Public Education funding to for profit schooling and having people filing for food stamps take a urine test, even though statistics have PROVEN it's a waste of money. Other states have tried it and it cost them millions to get a couple of people disqualified. Not exactly a fiscally responsible program. The incumbent says he is opposed to the big bad government wasting money, then supports something proven to be ineffective and costly. How can that be? His accomplishments ? Getting a gun bill passed that nobody but his buddies in GeorgiaCarry wanted. Instead of working to help the local economy, get people back to work, addressing a suspect education system, he focused on his pet project for his buddies in the very organization he is a card carrying member of. That may be okay to you and people like you, blurring the lines of ethics, but it is not okay with me and many others. Of course there will always be those that vote contrary to their own best interests. That is pretty obvious with how many people voted for Deal. I think people are starting to see the Georgia Legislature is as dysfunctional as the Federal level and most would rather see something accomplished than all the obstructionism for the sake of party unity. Guess we will see. If people in this district want nothing to change, nothing to get better then they will vote for the incumbent. On the other hand, if they want someone that will focus on the issues that will benefit this district, they will vote for me.

Holy Mother of Moses ..... you don't "drink the kool-aid", I think you're hooked up to an I.V. Wow.

Are you going to graciously concede on election night or spew more of this kind of venom?

I stand by my prediction. November can't get here soon enough.

[I can't think of anything original to say so insert robotic, inane, overused, unoriginal, trite euphemism similar to "you're drinking kool aid" to indicate that I think the previous commenter is brainwashed, robotic, sheeplike, etc. here]
