Local Voices Join In Concern Over Gas Prices

Local Voices Join In Concern Over Gas Prices

The increase in gasoline prices looks to throw the proverbial 'wrench' in what looked like a positive upswing for economic recovery. It is an issue that is effecting all – from the small rural communities in middle Georgia like Cochran, Hawkinsville and Jeffersonville to the bigger communities like Americus, LaGrange and Macon, as well as the metro areas like Atlanta.

According to the American Automobile Association(AAA), gas prices have increased by an average of 14 cents a gallon in the past month and about 30 cents a gallon since November. The gas prices seem to go up each week.
