There is a little relief at the pump.
Georgia gas prices decreased slightly, with motorists now paying an average price of $3.22 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline.
That is two is 2 cents less than a week ago, 3 cents less than last month, and $1.26 more than this time last year.
According to AAA, Crude oil prices fell slightly.
The price of oil accounts for about 50%–60% of what consumers pay at the pump, so a lower oil price usually translates into better gasoline prices for drivers.
Local averages on Monday were $3.17 in Floyd County and Chattooga County, $3.11 in Gordon County, $3.14 in Bartow County, and $3.20 in Polk County.
