Gas prices continue to rise across the nation and in Georgia.

The current average for a gallon of regular unleaded is $3.30 according to the AAA Fuel Gauge Report. That is a rise of 21 cents in just the last week, and a spike of 31 cents in the last month.

Georgia’s $3.30 average is 6 cents lower than the national mark.

Oil prices are rising across the country in response to the unrest in Libya.
