Holiday travelers see gas prices dip over weekend - WTOC-TV: Savannah, Beaufort, SC, News, Weather & Sports

Gas prices have holiday travelers mixed

Posted: Updated:

Gas prices have not deterred holiday travelers, but they may be rethinking the distance they'll be going.

Plenty of people still filled their tanks and hit the road for the holidays.

Clerks at a station in Metter station said prices have dropped a little since Saturday and Sunday were heavier travel days. Many drivers say gas prices have affected how far they're traveling this season.

Prices in Metter are $3.39 per gallon. Online reports from Savannah and Augusta have prices ranging from $3.10 to $3.30 per gallon. Some drivers say these prices have them staying closer to home.

"Seems like they seem to racket. They go up to $3, then drop to two. Then they go to 4 and drop to 3. It'll go to five, then back to 4. That's my prediction," said Gary Graham of Hilton Head.

The one thing we've learned about gas prices is - the only constant is change.
