Georgia’s gas prices have increased in the past week, according to AAA, The Auto Club Group. Motorists statewide are now paying an average of $1.92 a gallon for regular unleaded gasoline. That’s two cents more than a week ago, 22 cents more than last month, and 52 cents less than this time last year.
It now costs $28.80 to fill up a 15-gallon tank of gasoline. That’s $12.30 less than what motorists paid in April 2019, when pump prices hit last year’s peak of $2.74 per gallon.
AAA spokeswoman Montrae Waiters says, “As Americans drive more, they are re-fueling gasoline demand levels, which is helping to lift pump prices. Higher demand will contribute to increasing gas prices in the coming weeks, but they aren’t going to spike to typical summer prices.”
Sunday’s national average was $2.12 per gallon of regular unleaded. That is two cents more than a week ago, 20 cents more than last month, and 54 cents less than this time last year.
