Georgia’s gas prices declined last week, reports AAA, The Auto Club Group. Motorists statewide are now paying an average of $2.39 per gallon of regular unleaded, three cents less than last week and three cents less than last month, but 21 cents more than this time last year.
It now costs $35.85 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline. That’s $6.75 less than what motorists paid in May 2018, when pump prices last year’s peak of $2.84 per gallon.
Montrae Waiters, AAA Spokeswoman, asserts, “As stocks continue to grow, while demand decreases, pump prices across the nation are likely to continue seeing downward pressure through this week. This trend is creating cheaper gas prices for the majority of motorists.”
The national average price for regular unleaded gasoline is $2.55 per gallon, two cents less than last week and five cents less than last month, but 17 cents more than this time last year. The year-over-year difference is attributable to higher crude prices this winter over last.
