Heading in the right direction - Gas prices drop 7.6 cents/gallon in Ga. in past week

Average retail gasoline prices in Georgia have fallen 7.6 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.73/g yesterday. This compares with the national average that has fallen 4.2 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.85/g, according to gasoline price website

Including the change in gas prices in Georgia during the past week, prices yesterday were 0.6 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 4.7 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 0.7 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 1.5 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago.

"Average gasoline prices nationally continue to slowly drop," said Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "I'll go on the record and say that come Wednesday, I expect the national average in the U.S. will actually be lower than it was on the same day in 2011. Perhaps looking at the big picture with prices having failed to reach new records so far in 2012, we can restore some gas-sanity in this country. Prices go up and down every year, every season, regardless of who's name is on the ballot," DeHaan said.


GasBuddy operates and over 250 similar websites that track gasoline prices at over 140,000 gasoline stations in the United States and Canada. In addition, GasBuddy offers a free smartphone app which has been downloaded over 20 million times to help motorists find gasoline prices in their area.

I'm waiting for someone to say it is Obama's fault that gas prices have started to fall. After all, although everyone knows the president has no say in the price, it doesn't stop people from claiming it was Obama's fault for not opening up drilling (which is a false claim), not fast tracking the XL Pipeline, (that is being sold as a jobs package but will only create a couple of hundred permanent jobs according to TransCanada, the owner of the pipeline) that were the cause of the gas prices being so high. Given the logic of those claiming gas prices were because of Obama's "policies" and lack of leadership, You must now be saying what a great thing he is doing. As I said I am waiting for someone to give him credit for something he has no control of, just like when the prices were high........I won't hold my breath.
