Georgia’s gas prices continue to decrease, according to AAA, The Auto Club Group, which reports that motorists are now paying an average price of $2.40 a gallon of regular unleaded. That is four cents less than a week ago, but two cents more than a month ago and 30 cents more than this time last year.

It now costs $36.00 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline. That’s $5.10 less than what motorists paid in April of 2019, when pump prices hit last year’s peak of $2.74 per gallon.

Montrae Waiters, AAA Spokeswoman, asserts, “A healthy and growing level of domestic gasoline stocks alongside decreasing demand are two factors that are helping to minimize gas price fluctuations.”

Sunday’s national average of $2.55 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is three cents less than last week, the same as last month and 31 cents more than this time last year.
