Atlanta gas prices down an average of 5 cents

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Average retail gasoline prices in Atlanta fell 5.5 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.49 per gallon Sunday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 2,134 gas outlets in Atlanta.

This compares with the national average that has fallen 5 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.58 per gallon, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.

Including the change in gas prices in Atlanta during the past week, prices on Sunday were 10.8 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago, and are 3.1 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.

The national average has decreased 1.2 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 9.1 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.

"While gas prices in Anderson, SC have hit $2.99 per gallon in the last week, nationally, pump prices have also seen drops amounting to an average drop of a nickel per gallon," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

"Prices finally have dropped under their year ago values, just in time for those last minute vacations before school starts. The rest of the summer will likely see prices flirting with where they stand today, but more significant relief will arrive around mid-September, when prices nationally could be 10-25 cents per gallon lower than where they are today," DeHaan said.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
