Expect higher gas prices this holiday weekend

May 26, 2021–6:09 a.m.


Motorists hitting the road this week to celebrate the unofficial kick-off to summer will be greeted with the most expensive Memorial Day weekend gas prices since 2014.

Georgia gas prices are down 3-cents a gallon from last week as the supply has stabilized somewhat since the Colonial Pipeline cyber-attack.

However, AAA says that pump prices are likely to fluctuate leading up to the holiday weekend.

Local averages on Monday were $2.95 in Gordon County, $2.92 in Floyd County, $2.98 in Bartow County, $2.89 in Polk County, and $2.87 in Chattooga County.
