week however as the regular bus routes will resume on Monday April 3rd.

If you’re lucky enough to be on spring
break with your children and have a trip planned, AAA released the weekly gas
price brief for Georgia. Gas prices inched higher in Florida, slipped slightly in Georgia and remained the same in Tennessee. AAA stated that falling oil prices have

less than a week ago and 17-cents MORE than a year ago this time.
