Georgia’s gas prices dipped over the past week, according to AAA, The Auto Club Group. Motorists statewide now pay an average of $2.54 per gallon of regular unleaded, five cents less than last week, 14 cents more than this time last month and 18 cents less than this time last year.
It now costs $38.10 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline. That’s $4.50 less than what motorists paid last May, when pump prices hit their 2018 peak of $2.84 per gallon.
AAA spokeswoman Montrae Waiters says, “Although gas demand rebounded last week, growing gasoline stocks have helped to put downward pressure on pump prices after oil prices surged last week in response to the attacks on two Saudi Arabian oil facilities.”
Waiters also indicates, “As it appears now, pump prices will likely continue to hold steady moving into this week.”
The national average price per gallon of regular unleaded is $2.65, a cent less than a week ago, eight cents more than this time last month and 22 cents less than at this same time last year.
