Paying at the Pump

Prices of gas are soaring, and officials say it’s not going to get any better. Prices are up because of crude oil costs, which soared to almost $58 a barrel last week. Those costs account for half of consumer gas prices.

According to the New York Times:

The Energy Department’s analytical arm says the pump price will climb above $2.15 a gallon later this spring. When adjusted for inflation, the most expensive gasoline was $3.08 a gallon in March 1981, according to the agency.

Despite these rising prices, Atlanta prices are still averages ten cents less per gallon than the national average (although I’m still seriously thinking it’s time to get on the Prius waiting list!).

Average Unleaded Prices Per Gallon
Atlanta Today: 2.008
US Today: 2.106
Atlanta One Week Ago: 1.954
US One Week Ago: 2.050

    Great site if you’re looking for cheap gas in Atlanta (besides eating at the Varsity.)
