Drivers see decrease in Savannah area gas prices

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The average retail gasoline prices in Savannah have fallen 4.8 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.27 per gallon on Sunday, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.

Including the change in gas prices in Savannah during the past week, prices on Sunday were 11.7 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 5.5 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.

This compares with the national average that has fallen 0.4 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.29 per gallon.  

"As expected, the deep freeze during the last week impacted more than just the air temperature, but also kept a grip on gasoline prices," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan in a news release. "We saw very little change in the national average during the last seven days, and it's likely that the winter blues continue to lead to an overall dull next few weeks at gasoline pumps across much of the country. Due to the slow demand that January and February typically see, it'd really take a monumental ice breaker to crack the grip that holds the national average in place. I foresee prices remaining relatively quiet this week," DeHaan said.
