The average price of a gallon of regular gasoline in Georgia rose to $2.26 as of Sunday morning, according motorists' advocacy group AAA, up more than six cents overnight and more than 15 cents in a week. Prices were up 4 cents in North Carolina to $2.136 and 4 cents in South Carolina to $2.011.

PETALING JAYA: A smartphone app that lists the prices of petrol and diesel at various petrol stations in Malaysia, fuelling rumours of a "price war" is providing inaccurate information, warns the Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism Ministry.

"The app's inaccurate listing of diesel and petrol prices has caused confusion among consumers. Petrol stations are only allowed to sell fuel at the retail prices set by the Government," it said in a statement Thursday night.
