Georgia’s gas prices rose during the past week, according to AAA, The Auto Club Group. Motorists statewide are now paying an average price of $2.00 a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline. That’s eight cents more than a week ago, 25 cents more than last month, and 52 cents less than this time last year.
It currently costs motorists $30.00 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline. That is $11.10 less than what motorists paid in April 2019, when pump prices hit last year’s peak of $2.74 per gallon.
Montrae Waiters, a spokeswoman for AAA, states, “Demand levels are likely to ebb and flow in the coming weeks as people continue to be cautious about travel. As a result, pump prices will likely continue to increase through the end of July.”
Sunday’s national average was $2.18 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline. That’s five cents more than last week, 18 cents more than last month, and 53 cents less than at this time last year.
