Broad Street Guitars had a soft opening over the weekend with regular hours now in place: Tuesday through Saturday, from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. The store is a spinoff of Stephens Music Co. at Etowah Crossing near Goodwill.


Georgia gas prices declined 3 cents during the past week. Sunday’s state average of $2.46 is 6 cents higher than a month ago and 28 cents more than this time last year, according to AAA.

  • The most expensive gas price averages in Georgia are in Brunswick ($2.50), Savannah ($2.49), and Hinesville-Fort Stewart ($2.49)
  • The least expensive gas price averages in Georgia are in Dalton ($2.40), Augusta-Aiken ($2.40), and Warner Robins ($2.40)
  • So far, gas prices have averaged the highest for the month of February in four years
  • Georgia is 16th among states with the least expensive gas prices in the country

“Gas prices have the potential to drop 10-15 cents, based on what happened last week,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “However, refinery maintenance season is fast approaching and could spoil this big break for motorists. Every year – from February to April – reduced refinery output and the switch to summer-blend gasoline normally causes gas prices to rise 30-70 cents. Additional drops in oil prices would help soften the impact maintenance season has on prices at the pump. Expect volatility at the pump as these forces collide.”
