Gas prices continue to fall, opposite of predictions

Posted: Updated:
(WTVM) -

If you have a little extra money this month, it could be because gas prices are falling -- the exact opposite of what was predicted.

Instead of peaking, gas prices dropped about 40 cents less than they were this time last year.

According to AAA, the national average price for a gallon is $3.52.

We spoke with Jed Harris who served in the Georgia General Assembly and works closely with the community.

He explains these lower prices will encourage tourism, and that it couldn't come at a better time.

"Columbus and the valley have really become a tourist destination and, you know, white water rafting alone is projected to bring a couple hundred-thousand people here every year, so that's a very good thing," Harris said.

Georgia's average for a gallon of gas is $3.33 and Alabama's average is $3.29.
