GEORGIA (WRBL)– Georgia’s gas prices have gone up 21.4 cents compared to last months prices. Annually, prices are up $1.01, according to a survey conducted by GasBuddy.

On Feb. 13, the lowest recorded gas price was $2.99 per gallon. The most expensive gallon was priced at $3.99 per gallon.

Over the last ten years, gas prices have seen a range of prices per gallon.

In Columbus, gas price per gallon has a 30 cent difference with the lowest price at $3.09, and the highest $3.39.

Rising gas prices are being attributed to the rise in oil prices, and outages in Texas’ major refineries. Head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy, Patrick De Haan, breaks down the rise in prices.

“The jump in gasoline prices has continued unabated as oil prices continue to push higher, reaching $94 per barrel last week on continued concern over the possible imminent threat that Russia may invade Ukraine,” said De Haan. “Not only are oil prices up, but the bulk of the nation is starting the multi-month transition to summer gasoline, further adding to the rise at the pump. In addition, cold weather in Texas last week caused some power outages at major refineries, further weighing on markets. I see no other potentials in the short term but additional price increases unless Russia does an about-face on Ukraine. Even then, we’ll still see seasonality push prices up, so motorists should be ready to dig deeper.”
