Gas prices in Georgia rose by three cents last week, reports AAA, The Auto Club Group. Motorists statewide are now paying an average price of $2.43 per gallon of regular unleaded. That’s three cents more than a week ago, but nine cents less than this time last month and 21 cents less than this time last year.
It now costs $36.45 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline. That’s $6.15 less than what motorists paid in May 2018, when pump prices hit the ’18 peak of $2.84 per gallon.
Montrae Waiters, AAA Spokeswoman, states, “Last week, more than half of all states saw gas prices decrease. Due to ongoing maintenance and tighter gasoline supply, motorists can expect fluctuations at the pump likely through the end of the week.”
Sunday’s national average was $2.60; that is the same as the prior week, six cents less than the same time last month and 16 cents less than the same time last year.
