Gas prices starting to retreat, expected to continue

Posted: Updated:
(WTVM) -

For the first time this year gas prices are finally starting to fall after seeing record high numbers.

February's average of $3.65 a gallon was the highest in history for that time of year.

On Tuesday the national average is $3.70 a gallon, which is eight cents less from just last week. Georgia's average for a gallon of gas is $3.66, and Alabama's average is $3.58.

We spoke with Vincent Horton, a Phenix City man who explains what he can do with the gas money he will save.

"It's wonderful, you know, like I said, when more people have more money in their pockets they can do more things like put a smile on, maybe they can do stuff for their kids or something," said Horton.

According to gas, the cheapest gas in Columbus is at the Raceway on Victory Drive at $3.58 a gallon.

You can find the cheapest gas in Phenix City at the Short Stop on Lee County Road 240 at $3.49 a gallon.
