Georgia’s gas prices rose slightly over the past week, according to AAA, The Auto Club Group. Motorists statewide are now paying an average of $1.64 a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline – three cents more than a week ago, eight cents less than last month, and $1.05 less than this time last year.
It now costs motorists $24.60 to fill up a 15-gallon tank of gasoline – $16.50 less than what motorists paid in April of 2019, when pump prices reached last year’s peak of $2.74 per gallon.
Montrae Waiters, AAA Spokeswoman, indicates, “As some states begin to re-open businesses, those states will likely see demand increase and pump prices will likely follow suit. Gas price fluctuation will continue across the country in the coming weeks, especially as more states re-open and motorists begin to drive more.”
Sunday’s national average was $1.84; that is six cents more than a week ago, four cents less than last month, and $1.03 less than a year ago.
