The cost of a gallon of gas has been steadily inching its up over the summer. Prices at the Peachtree Corners QT on Peachtree Parkway and Peachtree Corners Parkway at 2 p.m. were edging up to the $4 mark for a gallon of regular gas.
According to a report on WPXI.com, a news station in Pittsburgh, "Gasoline prices have risen in recent weeks because of the higher oil prices and refinery problems in the Midwest and West Coast. At $3.75, the national average is at its highest level since May 9 and it is up about 42 cents from the low reached on July 2."
In July 31, the average gas price in Atlanta metro area was $3.52 - as of Aug. 29, 2012, the cost has risen to $3.95 per gallon.
