The average gasoline price in Atlanta rose five cents per gallon in the past week to $3.83 per gallon.

According to the gasoline price website, the national average increased 3.2 cents in the last week to $3.89 per gallon.

In Atlanta, gas prices are about 33.1 cents higher than they were one year ago. The price has risen 13.6 cents in the last month.

"The national average has finally showed some signs of slowing down and gasoline prices in dozens of areas have virtually stabilized after rising for two to three consecutive weeks," said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst.

"The rally in gasoline prices in March, we could have dubbed it March Madness, to coincide with the flurry of college basketball games, but as the tournament winds down, gasoline prices too have slowed their increase," said DeHaan.
