ATLANTA — Drivers around metro Atlanta have been searching for the cheapest prices at the pump and they might just find them at one chain on Thursday.
Between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. on September 1, drivers can knock another 40 cents off of a gallon of gas at some Circle K locations in metro Atlanta for Circle K Fuel Celebration Day.
According to AAA, the average price of a gallon of gas in Georgia is currently $3.38. That means that drivers are saving an average of $7 to fill up their tank compared to this time last year.

Earlier this year, gas prices skyrocketed. AAA reported that the average gas price in the state was $4.29 in early June, which was a near-record high.
To help lower the price of gas, Gov. Brian Kemp suspended the state’s gas tax, lowering the price of gas by about 30 cents.
Channel 2 Action News This Morning broke the news on Thursday morning that Kemp would be extending that suspension through mid-October.
