The Giles County gas price average continues to trend lower as Tropical Storm Sally moves toward the Gulf Coast.
The county's gas price average is now $1.94, which is down three cents from last week, three cents more than one month ago and 34 cents less than one year ago.
According to Megan Cooper, spokesperson for AAA, we have not seen much of an impact on gasoline prices ahead of the storm thus far, but that could change this week depending on the severity of the storm.
Cooper said some price fluctuation is typical any time a storm threatens the Gulf Coast region, however, any pump price impacts will likely be contained in the region and not have a national impact.
Mid-September is typically a point in the year that ushers in cheaper gas prices due to the switchover at gas stations from summer-blend to winter-blend, which is cheaper to produce.
Any pump price impacts will likely be contained to the region and not have a national impact.
