Gas prices may have peaked in northern New England

While it was too early Monday to tell what effect Irma would have on Southwest Georgia gas prices, Albany and much of the country were still stinging from the impact of Harvey's devastation of the Houston area.

The highest price reported in Valdosta Sunday was $2.72 at two locations, on West Hill Avenue and Cat Creek Road, while the lowest reported was $2.59 at a Norman Drive retailer, according to the price-tracking website

According to GasBuddy historical data, gasoline prices on September 11 in NY have ranged widely over the last five years: $2.31 per gallon in 2016, $2.56 in 2015, $3.68 in 2014, $3.84 in 2013 and $4.07 in 2012.

Nationally, the average price for a gallon of gas is $2.67, up three cents from last week ($2.64), 31 cents from a month ago ($2.36) and 49 cents from this same time past year ($2.18).

DeHaan said motorists should not expect to see any impact on gasoline prices due to Hurricane Irma because of the path the storm is expected to take.

Comparing it to one year ago today, gas in metro Detroit is up 36.8 cents per gallon and 16.8 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.

State of Tennessee- $2.59, up 2.9 cents per gallon from last week's $2.56.

Georgia was averaging $2.757 on the AAA survey and $2.762 on GasBuddy's on Monday.

DeHaan said reduced demand should help alleviate pain at the pump.

Gas prices in northern New England have gone up a bit more in the last week, but may have peaked as refineries return to production following Hurricane Harvey.

Gas prices usually begin to go down around Labor Day, as the summer driving season comes to an end.
