Georgia’s gas prices have risen in the past week, reports AAA, The Auto Club Group. Motorists statewide are now paying an average of $1.90 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline. That is 11 cents more than one week ago, 24 cents more than last month, and 58 cents less than this time last year.
It currently costs motorists $28.50 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline. That is $12.60 less than what motorists paid in April 2019, when pump prices hit last year’s peak of $2.74 per gallon.
Montrae Waiters, AAA spokeswoman, indicates, “Georgians continue to see increases at the pump; however, prices are still significantly cheaper than last year. As crude oil prices trend higher and gasoline demand continues to grow, Americans will see pump prices push more expensive, but this summer will likely remain cheaper than last.”
Sunday’s national average was $2.10 per gallon of regular unleaded. That is eight cents more than one week ago, 24 cents more than a month ago, and 60 cents less than this time last year.
