Gas prices have inched back up in the last week-and-a-half after reaching an 18-month low around Christmas.
The average price for a gallon of regular unleaded in Georgia was $2.72 cents on Wednesday, according to gasbuddy.com
Overall, both here in Middle Georgia and the rest of the nation, prices at the pump are down roughly 40 cents when compared to this time last year.
That's the good news. The bad news is that gasbuddy predicts that the "national average could reach $4 a gallon as early as May – and that’s something that could last through much of the summer driving season.”
Based on the fact that the average price for regular unleaded in Macon generally runs between 50-60 cents below the national average, that would forecast to around $3.40-$3.50 this summer around middle Georgia, at least according to gasbuddy.com
