Gas prices in Georgia continue to decline, according to AAA, The Auto Club Group. Motorists statewide are now paying an average of $2.41 per gallon of regular unleaded; two cents less than last week, three cents less than this time last month and seven cents less than at this time last year.
It now costs $36.15 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline. That’s $6.45 less than what motorists paid in May of 2018, when pump prices hit last year’s high of $2.84 per gallon.
Montrae Waiters, AAA Spokeswoman, asserts, “Growth in stock levels amid robust demand has helped to push pump prices down. If this trend continues, motorists might see lower gas prices later this month; that will be a welcome relief to Thanksgiving travelers.”
Sunday’s national average of $2.60 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is two cents less than last week, five cents less than a month ago and three cents less than the same time last year.
