Not surprisingly, gas prices in Suwanee have taken another jump, thanks no doubt to Hurricane Isaac and the approaching Labor Day weekend.
The latest reported prices (Wednesday, Aug. 29) on georgiagasprices.com show a low of $3.89 per gallon. Other stations already are well above the $3.90 mark.

Even before Isaac made landfall Tuesday evening, oil companies with refineries in the Gulf of Mexico had begun shutting down their operations. Refineries in that area are responsible for much of the nation's gasoline production. According to weather.com, the slow-moving storm is expected to hammer the New Orleans area with heavy rain and strong winds through Wednesday.
Also, the Labor Day weekend annually is one of the nation's top vacation times, with many drivers hitting the highways. That also pushes up gasoline demand.
