Gas Prices Getting a Break

Aug 23, 2011


With the volatility seen in the price of gas over the last several years, it’s nice to see that prices are starting to slowly trend downward. Although prices are not guaranteed to keep falling, this is a welcome change for drivers who have spent more than they would’ve liked to this summer.

Prices in Georgia have gone down about 6 or 7 cents a week for the last month, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Nationwide, prices are also declining by about 2 cents a week. These decreases can be tied to a recent drop in the price of crude oil.

Remember, even though prices are falling now, the sudden and unpredictable changes in the cost of fuel can catch your business off guard. Protect your budget by implementing a fleet fuel management system that will help you to manage costs and be prepared for any bump in the road.
