“Georgians continue to take a punch at the pump,” said Montrae Waiters, AAA-The Auto Club Group spokeswoman. “The rise in crude oil prices continues to be the major culprit for higher pump prices nationwide. Unfortunately, we cannot predict how high gas prices will rise this week; therefore, drivers are encouraged to follow AAA money-saving tips listed below.”
